Courageous Conversations

You're invited to join Pastor Robin and Pastor Evan in Courageous Conversations, a guided discussion group about race. 

 

"Now these conversations are an opportunity for education, for hearing new stories and sharing our own.  It's a chance for us to reflect on ourselves, to build relationships with one another and to deepen our welcome for all of the people who come to the food pantry as volunteers or as clients."

 

Monday on Zoom from 7-9pm, staring Feb.1st for six weeks.

Questions and/or suggestions?  Email Pastor Robin at pastorrobincaldwell@gmail.com
