stories from our neighbors
Join us as we begin on the heels of MLK weekend through Black History Month learning from black voices in their own words about the Christian call to be good neighbors. We will read from Howard Thurman's Jesus and the Disinherited, along with companion readings and other media that will draw from the rich history of African American reflection on what it means to follow after Jesus and love our neighbors. No registration is necessary, come as often as you are able. Books will be available for purchase at the class for those interested.
When: Wednesdays | January 22 - February 19 | 6:30-7:00pm
Where: Colonial Church

Community members, Emily & Steve Conrad, would like to invite the UR Young Adults to their home for dinner on the second Tuesday of every month. After reflecting on the influence UR had on them while they were in their 20s, they simply want to create a space to come together and create community. No need to bring anything, simply RSVP to help them in their planning, which is also where you'll receive their address in a confirmation message.

When we stepped into a collaborative partnership with Colonial Church it was decided that one of our goals would be to collaborate as two distinct churches for the sake of the Kingdom of God in faithfulness to Jesus Christ. One simple way to live into this is by knowing what is happening in each other’s communities and participating in opportunities each person feels would be a good fit.
