With thousands who already call its North Charlotte area location home each weekend, Freedom House Church, which celebrates its 15th year anniversary later this year, is excited to be a part of the fast-growing South End community. The new location, less than a minute walk from the Lynx Light Rail/New Bern Station, features a 400-seat auditorium, several kids and student classrooms, cafe and bookstore.
“This building and location was an answered prayer for our church,” says Troy Maxwell. “For years, we have been committed to reaching young families and single adults, so the idea of being a part of the South End community was something we were not going to miss out on.”
Service times for the new South End location, located on 3000 Griffith Street, will be Sundays at 9am and 10:30am. Parking is available at nearby Triple C Brewery, CMDAutomotive and The Durban Group, however, church attenders are also encouraged to park at the ScaleyBark Station and utilize the Lynx Light Rail.

Let me start by saying thank you, to those responsible for giving me this opportunity to speak to you.
I want to share a little bit about me. My name is Tirzah it is a biblical name and it meaning is (Daughter of inheritance favored by God). Yes I know a heavy mantel right. I was born in New Orleans, LA., raised around the world. My dad was in the Army so we moved around this country and internationally while I was growing up. I still believe traveling is one of the best ways to learn and experience life itself. I encourage you to travel and experience other cultures, foods and customs. Traveling will broaden your view of the world. Because of these experiences, I have come to believe that we as people, are more alike than we are different. We all want to love and be loved, to take care of our family and peacefully live in a safe, healthy environment.
What else can I share about me. Well I am a Daughter, a Sister, an Auntie, I was a wife and I am a Mother affectionately called “Mama Bear” you know what they say don’t mess with the babies of a Mama Bear.
I love my birth family and my extended family. See my Mother and mentor taught me that if you could feed yourself then there was enough to share with someone else. One other lesson she taught us, was that if you ate at our table, you became our extended family. I really miss those “Sunday Family Dinners” when we came together as a family. We were encouraged to invite someone else to eat with us. The house would be full of people, food, love and laughter. This is one of the reasons my Sister’s, my Brother and I have all raised other peoples children, along with our own. Either though foster parenting or adoption and the teenage friends of our children, they just refuse to leave.
Here are some interesting fact I will leave you with. My Dad wanted to retire where he started his military career. Where is that you ask, “Alaska” I know you didn’t see that coming. Well neither did my siblings or I can you imagine how shocked we were. Alright let me answer the questions many of you want to know. Yes, there are black people in Alaska lots of them. No we do not live in Igloos, nor it is not dark all the time and Yes dog sleds are used during the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Races.
After growing up in Alaska, I decided to raise my family right here in Seattle, I really love this place. I have been gone for about six years, I was back in Alaska taking care of my Mother. Thank God she is fine now so, I moved back here. I do have to admit I am concerned about some of the changes that taken place over the last couple of years. Well lets talk about that soon.
My name is Tirzah, I’m voicing my thoughts, opinions and comments on life and how I view it thanks for listening.

The Rev. Irene Monroe is determined to get the message out. Hand the plain-spoken theologian a microphone, and before you know it, she’s got a national radio show; pass her a keyboard, and out pours a commentary that is syndicated in papers across the country.
Monroe, an African American, feminist, ordained minister and motivational speaker, wants the public to understand the role that religion plays in discrimination against people from minority cultures. She does not believe Christianity is inherently intolerant, and she certainly does not want to see it used to oppress those who are not like ourselves.
On Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2017, the Rev. Irene Monroe will share her perspectives with Tacoma audiences by presenting the talk “From Stonewall to Pulse: The Intersections of Race, Sexuality, and Religion.” The spring Swope Lecture will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Schneebeck Concert Hall, near Union Avenue and N. 14th St., on the University of Puget Sound campus. A reception will follow in the Tahoma Room, Thomas Hall. Everyone is welcome and the event is free, however tickets are required. See below for more information.
Monroe is a syndicated religion columnist, a radio show host, television commentator, and Huffington Post blogger. She co-hosts the show All Revved Up on Boston Public Radio and appears in a weekly television segment called The Take, covering the latest pop-culture headlines, on New England cable channel NECN.
Described in O, The Oprah Magazine, as “a phenomenal woman who has succeeded against all odds,” Monroe is a sought-after speaker and a columnist for newspapers across the country, in the United Kingdom, and in Canada. As a writer, Monroe says, she tries to inform the public on the role that religion plays in discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people.
”Because homophobia is both a hatred of the ‘other’ and it’s usually acted upon ‘in the name of religion,’ . . . I aim to highlight how religious intolerance and fundamentalism not only shatters the goal of American democracy, but also aids in perpetuating other forms of oppression such as racism, sexism, classism, and anti-Semitism,” she writes.
Asked by the Outtake Voices radio series host how African-American communities, who have themselves faced discrimination, can be won over to support the civil rights of the LGBT community, Monroe commented:
“We need more churches (that) open their doors to the entire community. One of the things that the black church talks about is that being gay brings about the demise of the black family. The thing is that the black family is same-gender couples, it’s a grandma raising a grandson, it’s certainly a male and female. We have always had alternative types of family as a form of liberation and struggle against discrimination in this country. We’ve had to do it as a form of survival.”
Monroe has been widely honored for her work with minority communities and her efforts to win them equal rights. She was chosen by MSNBC as one of “10 Black Women You Should Know,” and she has been profiled in O, The Oprah Magazine, on CNN’s Paula Zahn Now show, and on CNN headline news. She is the recipient of awards including: the 2015 Top 25 LGBT Power Players of New England Award, from Boston Spirit Magazine; an Open Door Award, for services to the community; the 2013 Bayard Rustin Service Award; and the 2012 Spirit of Justice Award, from GLAD (GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders). She appeared in the documentary film For the Bible Tells Me So and was profiled in the “Gay Pride” episode of PBS’s In the Life.
A native of Brooklyn, N.Y., Monroe was a graduate of Wellesley College and Union Theological Seminary at Columbia University, before enrolling at Harvard Divinity School for her doctorate as a Ford Fellow.
The Jane Hammer Swope Lectureship on Ethics, Religion, Faith, and Values aims to promote discussion, critical thinking, and ethical inquiry about matters of religion, including its role in public life and contemporary ethics. The lectureship was established at Puget Sound through a gift from Maj. Ianthe Swope in honor of her mother, Jane Hammer Swope.
