Raising White Kids

You’re invited to join other parents in a study of Raising White Kids: Bringing Up Children in a Racially Unjust America by Jennifer Harvey, facilitated by Rev. Jessica Dayson, Pastor for Young Adults and Lay Involvement, and Amy Harriman, Director of Children’s Ministries. As we navigate how to have hard conversations with our children in hopes of creating a different world, this book will help bring to light ways we can talk about and teach our children about race.

Every other Wednesday
June 17-August 26
11:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.

Jesus and Justice 5-Week Virtual Small Group for Youth

This 5-week small group will meet via Zoom and learn about racism in America through scenes from the Netflix series, All American. Topics covered will include but will not be limited to: Anti-Racism, Racial Profiling, White Privilege, Police Brutality, Advocacy/Allyship and Equality vs. Equity. We will study scripture and discuss justice through a faith lens, so that we can love and better understand the perspective of our BIPOC (Black Indigenous People of Color) neighbors. We believe this topic has to be conversational, so please signup ONLY if you are committed to coming to at least 4/5 weeks.
