SPECIAL LENTEN OFFERING: Repentance and Repair
Sundays February 25 - March 10 Following Worship in the Family Room
Based on Reparations: A Christian Call for Repentance and Repair
by Duke L. Kwon and Gregory Thompson ©2021
You might be asking “Why are we bringing up ‘reparations’ in church?” or “Why do we still need to talk about race?” This award-winning book, written by two pastors, addresses these questions through a compelling exploration of American Christian history and scripture that calls us to explore the work of repentance and repair. We hope our discussions help us move past politically charged words to embrace more deeply our calling as agents of repair and restoration wherever harm has been suffered or wrongs have been done. Reading guides are available, whether you have a little or a lot of time to read, so that you can join us for discussions.
In the 1600's, Bavarian Monks were not allowed to consume solid foods during Lent, and, needing something other than water to sustain them, they turned to a common staple of the time of their region – really strong beer! We certainly don't recommend you try that practice during Lent, but Andrew Van Til, Master Cicerone ® with Duvel USA, will guide us in a fun evening tasting 6 of his chosen brewed selections. Hard seltzer will be available for those who wish to attend with their beer-lovers and aren't fans themselves. Stick around after to ask questions and enjoy one another's company. This event is FREE, but registration is required. Must be 21 and over. Please drive responsibly; arranging rides or an Uber is suggested. Free-will donations will be accepted with a grateful heart.

Facilitated by: Crossroads - Chicago Regional Organizing for Anti-Racism (CROAR)
Delving into racism is not an easy topic, and yet our willingness to talk and learn together is already making space for people to bring more of themselves to church. Take the next step by joining this one-day workshop with our experienced facilitators, Nora Gaines and Ryan Lents, who do an incredible job creating inclusive, insightful interactions that deepen relationships. They will help us explore how racism operates on various levels and grow a vision for how we become more like the community God dreams.
Sign up is required! Lunch is included. This event is sponsored by the FCC Anti-Racism Committee and paid for by our Foundation.
