Faith & Family.

Raising wholehearted and healthy kids takes love, wisdom, and a whole lot of support along the way. Join us for monthly gatherings at the intersection of faith & family, where we will seek to integrate our journeys with Jesus to significant topics.

For some families, anti-racism is being talked about regularly and some families don’t know where to begin the conversation. And no matter where parents find themselves, we all desire for our world to be an inclusive place where our kids and our neighbors all feel welcome.

Join Jenni Bratulich, Upper Room parent and Director of Development at Amazeworks, an organization that champions equity and belonging through an anti-bias education curriculum, as she shares and leads a discussion on what it looks like to do this anti-racism work as a family, what challenges arise, and what it looks like to do this in community.

– Date & Time: December 7th from 6:00 – 7:30pm
– Location: Gathering Room 1
– Cost: None
– Register: None required.
