SHE DID WHAT SHE COULD W/Pastor Glenn
WEDNESDAYS AT 11AM AT AUDUBON PARK CHURCH, BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 15
Most of us care. We really do. We care about poverty and injustice, about orphans and the sick. And yet, weighed down by the everyday load of bringing home a paycheck, putting food on the table, and taking care of our family demands, we question our ability to make a difference. Bombarded by one celebrity help-the-world-athon after another, we shrug our shoulders in futility and do absolutely nothing. Enter She Did What She Could. Based on the woman who anointed Jesus' feet with expensive perfume in Mark 14, She Did What She Could provides overwhelmed, yet service-seeking, significance-starved readers a realistic response to the seemingly unmeetable needs around us.
ME AND WHITE SUPREMACY w/ Pastor Geoff
MEETS VIA ZOOM ON TUESDAYS AT NOON, BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 14
ZOOM LINK: Click here to join meeting
Participants in this class may want to also join our CONFRONTING RACISM FACEBOOK GROUP
Awareness leads to action, and action leads to change. In this six week study we will closely examine our own beliefs and biases and do the work it will take to create real social change. Author Layla F. Saad wrote Me and White Supremacy to encourage people who hold white privilege to take a look at the racism in their lives through a 28-day reflection process complete with journaling prompts to do the necessary and vital work that can ultimately lead to improving race relations.
This study will walk you step-by-step through the work of examining your own white privilege; exploring what ally-ship really means; learning about anti-blackness, racial stereotypes, and cultural appropriation; changing the way that you view and respond to race; and learning about how to continue the work to create social change
In this Grow Class we’ll use weekly zoom meetings on Tuesdays at Noon and a Facebook group. Books are available through Aunties, Amazon, and other booksellers. There's also an optional workbook. You can also find it at Aunties, Amazon, and other booksellers.
THE CHOSEN DISCUSSION GROUP w/ Pastor Geoff
THURSDAYS AT 7PM AT AUDUBON PARK CHURCH, BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 16
A charismatic fisherman drowning in debt. A troubled woman wrestling with real demons. A gifted publican ostracized by his family and his people. A religious leader struggling with his beliefs. Being chosen by Jesus has beautiful and far-reaching implications, although it says even more about the Chooser than the chooses. Join us for an exploration of the life of Jesus Christ through the perspective of those that interacted with him.
The Chosen is a thought-provoking eight-week video dramatization of the remarkable ministry of Jesus and those who were called to “come and see.” Interweaving scripture with original creative dialogue, each of the eight episodes we will view from Season One will give us a possible backstory that seeks to be consistent with the witness and character of Jesus. Each week you’ll watch an episode at home (45-60 min) and then we’ll discuss it together.
