“Waking Up White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race”
Have you ever felt frustrated and struck when it comes to racism? You’re not alone! Racism taps into our deepest fears and longings – but understanding how it works is the key to breaking down barriers that interfere with best intentions. White people may have learned not to talk about race. People of color may be puzzled how their white colleagues just don’t get it. Perhaps the answers lie not so much in our heads as in our hearts.
The season of Lent is a time for reflection, and we will be exploring racism on a “heart” level with the All-Church Book Study of Debby Irving’s “Waking Up White”.
Look for more details about when discussions will take place, but plan on joining the conversation. You can pick-up the book on Amazon or at your local library.

From Sunday morning worship that helps you get through your week, to faith formation classes to deepen your faith, to giving back to the community, we offer a variety of ways to get connected.
From growing food for Circle of Concern in our community garden to setting aside the Sunday after Easter for a day of service, we take seriously our value to serve others as Christ served others. If you're looking for a church that puts their faith into action, you'll find one here.
Our aim is to foster relationships across generations that help kids in their lifelong journey of faith. For us this means we won't chase the latest fad in Christian education or segment the kids off on their own. Instead, our kids will know adults on a first-name basis and receive the support they need from a community that cares.
If you're looking for worship that resembles a show, we may not be for you. But if you're looking for worship that touches your heart and head, this may be the place for you. We offer thoughtful worship for thinking people in a beautiful sanctuary where the greeting is as warm as the light that shines through our windows. Come to have your faith nurtured, challenged and strengthened.
