As part of our #MYNC vision, we will actively engage in an effort to become a more unified, and racially diverse, body of believers by embracing our God-given responsibility of becoming reconciled to each other through a deeper understanding of racial divides and biblical resolutions.
Stepping Towards Racial Reconciliation: Conversations About Race & Church
Sunday, March 24th (4-6pm) at the Brookberry Barn
Whether you are someone who is already passionate about racial reconciliation, trying to wrap your head around what it means, or curious but nervous about how to engage in this topic, this is the event for YOU! We will be laying the foundation for why New Church is embarking on a journey towards racial reconciliation and how that relates to you.
You will have the opportunity to…
· Understand T.J. and Wendy Ward’s heart and why this is a gospel issue
· Learn about systemic racism and the impact of history on today’s society
· Hear from a diverse panel of speakers from our church who will share their experiences, struggles, and learnings
· Ask questions in a safe space
· Deepen community with others who are alongside you in the journey
