Our Neighbors, Our City is a group that meets monthly (typically the first Monday of each month) to discuss issues surrounding racism.  This is a group that dares to become vulnerable and humble with one another. We ask tough questions, wrestle, and grow together. We hope you will join us as we seek to prayerfully explore how we can embody God’s kingdom vision for our community, our city, and our world.
