Santa Clarita Christian Fellowship is celebrating Black History Month with a series of online worship events tied into its Sunday streamed services for the entire month of February.

“Now that we are in this COVID-19 pandemic and have been forced to migrate our services online, we are determined not to allow anything to hinder or block the celebration of this most important month where we thank the Lord for what he has done for us as a people and for the special place and role that we play in the story of American history overall,” the Rev. Julius A. Harper, senior pastor at the church, said in a prepared statement.

While these past 10 months have been challenging, the church wants to continue to take a positive and forward-looking attitude in helping to bring the entire Santa Clarita community together, per the release.

Normally, the church would have presented a series of events, such as its annual “Soul Food Celebration,” and invited all residents to come, worship and enjoy the experience of having an authentic soul food meal.

This year that cannot happen, so it was decided that the church would use its Facebook and YouTube platforms to present a series of offerings during its online worship streams.

“Along with traditional gospel singing, preaching and praising, we will present special content, such as poems, Black history moments, video interstitials and more,” Harper added.

Santa Clarita Christian Fellowship’s online services are streamed 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. on Sundays. Viewers can find links at or via a search on YouTube, Google and Facebook.
