Christian education is our invitation to understand God’s world and our experience in that world in deep and transformational ways. We will not be able to gather in person this summer, while our country and our communities engage in urgent conversations about racism, police brutality, power, government, creation care, and so much more. We want to provide opportunities for us as a faith community to learn, discuss, and inspire one another toward action for justice.
We have several options for gathering online throughout the summer to do that:
Let’s Read: Open Door Churches Summer Book Study (online gathering times will vary)
