The Color of Compromise — A Discussion on Race & The Church

Using a "lunch-and-learn” format, we will utilize video, book content, Biblical teachings, and discussion questions provided by the author to help discuss race and the church. The preface to this amazing book/video series begins with this:
In August of 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech, calling on all Americans to view others not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. Yet King included another powerful word, one that is often overlooked. Warning against the "tranquilizing drug of gradualism," King emphasized the fierce urgency of now, the need to resist the status quo and take immediate action. King's call to action, first issued over fifty years ago, is relevant for the church in America today. Churches remain racially segregated and are largely ineffective in addressing complex racial challenges. In The Color of Compromise Video Study, Jemar Tisby takes us back to the root of this injustice in the American church, highlighting the cultural and institutional tables we have to flip in order to bring about progress between black and white people.

If you’ve struggled with this topic, plan now to join us on Tuesdays during lunch and continue your education into this topic. The class will typically feature ten minutes of gathering (11:55 am - 12:05 pm), twenty minutes of the video series (12:05 - 12:25 pm), and twenty-five minutes of discussion/exploration (12:25 - 12:50 pm). Our goal is to make this “lunch-break friendly” for your various work environments. Led by Lead Pastor Chris Goldman and Nicole/Colin Boyle.

Times were hard for the first readers of the Book of Hebrews. To provide hope, the writer reaches back into the Old Testament and shows how Christ moves them from the past, to the present, and beyond. Join us for a fresh look of this timely book as we look at our own hard times, so we can grow in our steadfast faith that will carry us now and into eternity. Taught by Care Pastor Bill Lawrence.

Have you recently lost someone you love? This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. Come join an online GriefShare class which will be led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You’ll gain access to valuable GriefShare resources to help you recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life. Led by Jenny Ricker.

You can attend this class
either in-person (Room 108)
or online via Zoom.

Our faith in Christ Jesus must be intellectually adequate for the day in which we live. We need reasons to develop and mature our spiritual walk, and we'll look at the stages of Christian faith. We'll discuss why we believe in the existence of God, and why we believe that the Bible is His Word. This class will also consider why we believe that Jesus was the Christ—the Son of God—and why we believe Jesus will come again. We will also look at what it means to be a Christian, and why there is suffering and pain in God's world. Taught by Dr. Glen R. Basey.

This class promises to be a robust study, and you'll come away from it with a deeper understanding and more resilient faith. Registration is required, so that we can send you additional study materials. You may attend either in-person in Room 108 or online via Zoom.
