We are delighted to announce that our Porch Talks for a Beloved Community series is back! After a 2 year hiatus due to the pandemic, this year we will offer one event, from the porch of the Van Aken building (17300 Van Aken Blvd.), on Saturday, August 27 at 5:30 p.m. The Rev. Dr. Jack Sullivan, Jr., Disciples of Christ minister and Executive Director of the Ohio Council of Churches, will be our speaker, and music will be provided by the Greater Cleveland Choral Chapter. A light reception follows the program. We are equally enthusiastic about our partnership with East View UCC and Plymouth UCC to make this happen! A planning group with representation from all three congregations, including Carl Cormany and Larry Watson from HCC, has been meeting regularly to coordinate the details. Please plan to attend and invite a friend. Bring a blanket or lawn chair, and prepare to be inspired to action!
