- February 26, 2017|6:00pm – 8:00pm
We will conclude Black History Month by gathering here in the sanctuary on Sunday evening, February 26th, at 6:00 pm. Childcare will be provided.
We will show a 45 minute video of a panel discussion led by Matt Chandler, the president of Acts 29 (the church planting network of which we are a part) in which he interviews a group of Acts 29 pastors at the pastors’ retreat on their experiences of growing up black in America. This retreat happened to come in the immediate aftermath of the shootings in Louisiana, Minnesota and Dallas. The pastors and elders have watched this video together and we were deeply moved by it. These are fellow pastors we know, love, and trust, and we think you too will find what they share to be moving, insightful, and thought-provoking.
This will be followed by a panel discussion, facilitated by the elders, and featuring local black civic and non-profit leaders. You will have the opportunity to share your questions and comments for the panel. We hope to see you there!
