Mercy and Justice Now: Understanding God’s Call - Reverend. Sarah Marsh

We know God calls us to make a real difference in the world, but we also know it can be tough out there and especially now. What does the Bible teach us about what God desires for the church? How are we to figure out what to do? Explore God's two-fold mission for the church of mercy and justice in this interactive workshop with Rev. Sarah Marsh.

Embracing Cultural Diversity - Reverend Kathy Williams

We are learning from our experiences surrounding cultural diversity as we are faced with the enduring question of its purpose in our lives. When we embrace our own culture, while valuing and honoring other cultures, we grow closer in discovering our identity and sharing a more full expression of God in the world.
