On Sunday, March 24, for about two hours after worship, the Vine Street Life Group is hosting a community meal in order to include the entire Vine Street community in topics around race and the church that they have been exploring for the last five months.
How it works:
During the first hour, you will be given a colored paper to determine your seating arrangements, then grab your food. Parents can help children decide if they would like to sit with them or at another table. At your table, while you eat, you will delve into questions ranging from how you have seen racism at work to how the church can be actively involved in combating racism. In the second hour, we will share some of our conversations with the full group to hear similarities and differences in experiences.
This event is all age-friendly, but childcare will be available as well.
There will be a variety of displays to help guide your thinking in this conversation.
We also ask for you to bring a side, dessert, or drinks to go along with the meal.
We are incredibly excited to share in a meal and conversation, bringing our table of unity into reality.
