"I tell stories from around the world with an emphasis on Black traditions. My stories include African folktales, both researched and gathered on my trips to west and South Africa, African American History, including Underground Railroad and Blacks during the Revolutionary Period and the Civil Rights Movement. I tell personal stories of growing up Bi-racial, and re-tell Bible stories in a unique style."

This is an outdoor event. The church is handicapped accessible.

The United Methodist Church of New Canaan is active in local and global missions with increased member participation in hands-on missions throughout the year. Our philosophy is that we never say no to anyone who wants to help; everyone possesses their own unique set of skills and talents that may be useful in helping others.

We provide financial support to 13 organizations that provide physical and emotional comfort to those in need. Some of the organizations we allocated funds for in 2015 include: Domestic Violence Crisis Center, Heifer International, Pivot Ministries and UMCOR. Some of the missions we support both financial and in a hands-on way include Local Food Pantry, Meals on Wheels, Habitat for Humanity and Midnight Run.
