Head Start Sunday at Union Baptist Church

A simple symbol is these building blocks colored in red, white and blue. This symbol is the logo for Head Start.


"Head Start is a national program that promotes school readiness by enhancing the social and cognitive development of children through the provision of educational, health, nutritional, social and other services to enrolled children and families."

Today is Head Start Sunday at Union Baptist Church. Through the vision of Rev. Vernon Dobson, Ms. Dorothy Mapp, and Ms. Lavern Stewart they embarked on this mission over 41 years ago to develop the Union Baptist / Harvey Johnson Head Start Program. Over 7,000 children have graduated from this program during this period of time. In 1995 Union Baptist Church built a single purpose building to house its Head Start Program which is located at 1211 Druid Hill Avenue.

I'm preparing a sermon for this morning entitled, "Children are an Legacy from God." Text: Psalm 127

Indeed they are a blessing to each of us and our community. "Teach them well and let them lead the way. Show them the beauty they have inside."
