Dialogues on Race

Begins May 10

Four Consecutive Tuesdays

Turn Conflict Into Community

Race and racism are so prevalent in US culture, that few stop to reflect upon what race is, why it was created, and how deeply ingrained race has become in American Christianity.  It has left American churches segregated in the pews and divided in faith.  Can this damage be repaired?  Dialogues on Race explores that very question.  With seven essays from leading Christian thinkers, Dialogues On Race asks penetrating questions about how the church in the US got to this point, and how, or if, white supremacy can be expelled from American Christianity.

Dialgues On is an adult small group resource that encourages honest talk about difficult topics.  In a time when so many conversations end in conflict, these resources equip readers to share their ideas, listen well, learn from other viewpoints, and develop action plans to bring hope and healing out of the church and into the world. It is published by Sparkhouse, which is affiliated with the ELCA.

Join us for this 4-week program including short videos and small group discussions. Look for more details soon!

MacCanon Brown Homeless Sanctuary

We are collecting new and gently used queen & king blankets as well as king & queen sheet sets for MBHS. Many of their guests are homeless or living in under heated or unheated living spaces. The blankets may be their only bed or source of warmth. 

Please drop your donations in closed bags to keep them organized and clearn during transport. They can be left in the rolling cart as you walk into FPLC--right next to the food cart. 

If you would like to volunteer to drive our collection to MBHS, please contact Stacia Hickey at the link below.
