Upcoming Schedule

February Gathering: Honoring Black History Month

Retracing Freedom's March on the Fall Mission Trip
Presented by Robert Crouch, Director of Volunteer Ministry

Friday, February 7
6:00 p.m.
Borwell Dining Room

Register online here by Tuesday, February 4

The 2019 Civil Rights Movement Trip, sponsored by the Racial Equity Council, was a deep immersion into both the tragic dimensions of systemic racism in our country and the inspiring hope, faith, commitment, and resilience of those who have resisted it. Participants on the trip were especially moved by firsthand accounts of marchers from Selma and Freedom Riders in Jackson.

Join us this month as we hear from Robert Crouch, Director of Volunteer Ministry at Fourth Church, who served as one of three co-leaders on the civil rights trip. Robert will share a remarkable commentary and pictorial account of the experience and what was learned from the journey on the trails of the civil rights movement tour.

As usual, our evening will begin with appetizers, followed by dinner and a presentation.

Reservations ($25 per person) must be made no later than the morning of Tuesday, February 4. Reserve your spot online (preferred) or by contacting Anne Ellis.
