Urban Missions Committee schedule + Partakers info session + book club reschedule

Hello friends!

Some updates and announcements re: Urban Missions Committee (UMC) meetings over the next few months. Every meeting starts at 11:15am (between services).
  • August 27. We've invited the organizer of Partakers to come share with our church about the program. In short: Partakers is this awesome program that pairs up communities (small groups of 4-6) of people with men and women who are currently incarcerated to help them complete a college degree from Boston University. Come check it out if you're interested -- no commitment is necessary.
  • September 24. This will be our kick-off UMC meeting for the new season. Come check out what we're about and bring the conversations from the book clubs and the race and justice series with you. :)
  • October 22. Monthly UMC meeting.
  • October 29. The next book club. We'll be reading The Next Evangelicalism by Soong Chan Rah (AmazonReview)
    • Note: we're rescheduling this due to some scheduling challenges. As always, you don't need to read the book to join, but now you have three whole months to read the book, and I've been told reading the book will enhance your experience. :)
I'll send out a reminder for the Partakers info session closer to the day of, but put it on your calendars! I've been so excited to learn more about the program, and hope we can put together a team.
Let us know if you have any questions!
