New Adult Sunday Series:

A Call to Radical Welcome-Immigration. 

Immigration.  Some think it is a political issue – not the thing we talk about in church.  But we know otherwise.  Immigration is a moral issue.  It is a theological issue.   We are called by God to live lives of radical welcome – and that includes, as the Bible puts it, welcoming the stranger and the sojourner – and remembering where we came from.

Join us in the Cobb-Falk Room Sunday mornings at 9:30 in October as we examine the issues surrounding immigration and ask what it is, as people of faith, that we are called to do. 

Sept 28 - Sue Moore offers and introduction and overview of what Scripture says about this topic

Oct. 5 and 12 -  Merrilee Wineinger and speakers from Justice for Our Neighbors look at immigration issues here in Nashville

Oct. 19 – Lloyd Lewis leads us in a discussion of Richard Rodriquez’ book “Brown”  (You do not need to have read the book, but if you wish to, it is available from Amazon for $12.01)

Oct. 26 – Pulling It All Together – an open discussion of where we see God in this
