Quinn Memorial AME Church, 515 North St., Steubenville, will sponsor its 10th-annual Genesis Day Celebration at 4 p.m. Sept. 9.
The 12 tribes of Genesis represent God's servant Jacob, who bestowed an absolute spiritual, prophetic blessing on the 12 tribes of Israel in Genesis 49:28. This spiritual blessing prophesied a significant event that will take place for each tribe entering the promised land and included a comparative reference to the advent of Jesus, the Messiah, according to a church spokesperson.
The 12 tribes will be portrayed and presented by members of Quinn, who are pictured.
Ilana Chester is chairman of the celebration. Lisa Thomas and Gloria Crossland are co-chairmen. The Rev. Ronald Eskridge is the church's pastor.
