Study on Realities of Race and Racism
Sundays 9AM Aug. 2 – Oct. 11
Conversations around race can be uncomfortable for most of us. Conversations around race in the Church are no exception. The General Commission on Race and Religion of The United Methodist Church has created a Vital Conversations Video Series as a way to begin dialogue, face our misconceptions and fears, and move deliberately to spiritual, communal and social transformation. Join us Sunday mornings at 9AM via Zoom as we come together in humility, vulnerability and a willingness to have open conversations about race and racism.
