Commemorating Juneteenth


Our Daily Bread Ministries honors the federal holiday of Juneteenth and our offices will be closed tomorrow, June 19th.

Juneteenth memorializes June 19, 1865 when 250,000 slaves were liberated in Texas—two years after the Emancipation Proclamation.

We encourage you to watch Our Daily Bread Ministries’ documentary Juneteenth: Faith & Freedom and discover the inspiring connection between Scripture and the enduring faith of enslaved people.

Also check out our companion devotional Freedom for All: A Juneteenth Reading Plan. Enjoy this 10-day reading plan to meditate on the biblical concepts of freedom, human dignity, hope, and perseverance.
