Common Ground – Sunday, June 30 – 5-7 pm

Join us for a simple supper and conversation about community – yours growing up, now, and what you most want to see in the future. We will discuss how our upbringing shapes our thinking, and how everyone can work together to build community wherever they are – community that respects all and equips all, in love, for justice and peace. Free and open to the public – advance registration necessary. Go to to register.

Porch Talks for a Beloved Community – June 23 – 4:00 pm

The second of our three talks focused on continuing Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s call toward social justice takes place on June 23 at Heights Christian Church. The speaker will be Rev. Dr. Mendle Adams retired UCC pastor and a board member of Ohioans to Stop Executions.  

Note: Porch Talks will be held outdoors (weather permitting) from the porch where Rev. King spoke in 1965. Bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on. In the event of rain, the talk will move indoors.

A follow up conversation with Dr. Adams will be held on Tuesday, June 25, from 7:00 – 8:30 at Plymouth Church.  Our thanks to Plymouth Church for their support of this program and for hosting the conversation.
