Conversation Church/Common Ground Event 7/25 at 10:30 am

Join us 7/25 for a community conversation designed to build community and strengthen bonds between neighbors. Set within a time for prayer and reflection, this gathering seeks to grow curiosity, courage, and connection. Participants will respond to simple conversation starters, share their stories and perspectives, and discover common ground as well as diverse outlooks. Using materials from A Sanctified Art, we explore questions such as “Where Are You From?” and “Where Do We Go from Here?” Let’s come together, share stories, and grow common ground. This event will be hybrid (both in person and online.) If you’d like to join us via Zoom, let us know and we can send you the link. Pre-registration is necessary – sign up here:
