Congregations in Northern Illinois are invited to participate in an important growth and training opportunity, Skin in the Game: Equipping Congregations to Challenge Racism.  This half-day workshop on August 19 will provide practical guidance and resources for clergy, lay leaders and Christian Educators to address one of the most troublesome issues in our churches. The guest speaker will be Rev. Dr. Felicia LaBoy who has 14 years of urban and multicultural pastoral ministry as someone who moves from the “seminary to the street, from the pulpit to the pavement.”

The Skin in the Game workshop will be held at First UMC Elmhurst on Saturday, August 19th, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Registration fee of $10 is requested to cover expenses.   Advanced registration is requested here.

June Green and Mary Rawlinson are going. If you’d like to coordinate carpooling, please contact June at queenjune@att.net.
