Our book studies are a time for people to come together, pray together and study together about what we believe. This event occurs in a relaxed setting, with a time for interactive planning and discussion for spiritual growth and fellowship. We invite you to join us and bring a friend.

Waking Up White
Please order or reserve your own copy today. This book study will be held on Mondays, September 11 – November 6, 5-6:30pm, at Hideaway Pizza on Western.
(From the Author Debby Irving) “Waking Up White is the book I wish someone had handed me decades ago. My hope is that by sharing my sometimes cringe-worthy struggle to understand racism and racial tensions, I offer a fresh perspective on bias, stereotypes, manners, and tolerance. As I unpack my own long-held beliefs about colorblindness, being a good person, and wanting to help people of color, I reveal how each of these well-intentioned mindsets actually perpetuated my ill-conceived ideas about race. I also explain why and how I’ve changed the way I talk about racism, work in racially mixed groups, and understand the racial justice movement as a whole. Exercises at the end of each chapter prompt readers to explore their own racialized ideas.”
