Men’s Day in Belle Glade
February 16 @ 11:00 am
The international Men’s Day 2020 may not be until November 19, but the well-known Rev. Dr. J. R. Thicklin will speak on issues related to men–especially men of color–today at New Bethel Missionary Baptist Church in Belle Glade. The event theme: Loving and Living By Faith on Purpose. Rev. Thicklin, aka the ‘Man of Purpose,’ is the executive director of the nonprofit Destiny by Choice, which has worked to fight domestic violence and its related social ills for more than two decades. He is also president of the Palm Beach County Clergy Alliance, which uses the power of an organized Church to make a difference in the communities its members serve. So, clearly, he’s informed enough to talk about the three points he plans to make today: faith is more than a wish; learn to trust God; and align your faith with your purpose. Today’s event is free and open to the public; for more information, call the church at (561) 983-8456. And for more information on Pastor Thicklin, click here.
