The Tribe for the month of January is Reuben 
The color is Navy Blue and the Leaders of the Tribe are Deacon Willie Tillman and Deacon Sylvester Miller.


Reuben, the firstborn of the twelve sons, was to Jacob his “might, the first sign of my strength” (Genesis 49:3), indicating that to him were all the rights and prerogatives of a firstborn son.  At first, he excelled in honor and power, as is fitting the firstborn son, but Jacob declares that Reuben “will no longer excel” (verse 4) due to his sin of incest with Bilhah, his father’s concubine wife (Genesis 35:22).
