Join this small group on Sunday mornings at 9:30am in the NEUMANN CENTER LIBRARY (Second floor of the Neumann Center just down from the kitchen/craft room).

Through teaching and honest dialogues, Bryan and Matt will unpack the hard truths about America’s racial past and present and suggest a pathway forward of healing, justice, and hope for multiethnic harmony in the church.  Facilitated by Bill Condon.

This will be offered in the HYBRID model, which is a convergent format of in-person (ten people max) and a simultaneous zoom meeting. MASKS AND RESERVATIONS REQUIRED FOR THE IN-PERSON GROUP Connect with Bill at: whcondon1023@gmail.com
