Explore how our Christian faith speaks to issues of contemporary thought and society. Current events, societal issues and the changing world are discussed. The goal of classes isn't to tell you what to think, but to broaden our thinking.
The first three Sundays in August, the Adult Sunday School class studies faith and racial justice. The last two Sundays in August focus on the hymnals of our four denominations, which are: Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Presbyterian (USA), United Church of Christ and the United Methodist Church.
-Deepen your understanding of systemic racism
-Gain practical tools for dismantling systemic racism
-Gain a biblical and spiritual foundation for dismantling systemic racism
In this study:
Faith and Racial Justice invites you to formulate your own Christian-rooted response to racism. The goal of the study is to challenge our own thinking about racism, its causes and its impact, while helping us discern practical steps to address it. By encouraging new spiritual practices and informed action, it cultivates an expanding community of Christians who work to dismantle racism in their respective contexts.
