Adult Discipleship

Join us via zoom for this book study "I'm Still Here" by Austin Channing Brown

The work of anti-racism is a critical part of our discipleship. In this 4 week book study, Mindie Moore will lead us through Austin Channing Brown’s book “I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness”. We will learn together, examine our own beliefs, and commit to how we will do the work of anti-racism as people of faith. This group will involve a combination of large group teaching and break out groups. Please let us know if there is someone you would like to be in a group with for this topic, and we will work to accommodate that request. June 15-July 6 at 7-8:30pm via Zoom  The book is available on Amazon or Barnes and Noble. REGISTER HERE.

Pastors will be hosting different topics each week, May 27-July 1. Pastor Book Study is always open to all, and this is a great time to join!  The group meets virtually at 10AM on Wednesdays.
