Continuing conversations on race, racism, and our call as Christians to love others is incredibly important right now. Just Mercy, a recent movie based on real events, tackles those topics extremely well and is free to rent during the month of June. That’s why we’re inviting everyone to watch the film and then join the conversation in one of three ways:
- Family Watch and discuss as a family
- Neighbors Watch and discuss with neighbors you feel comfortable sharing space with
- Youth Group Watch and discuss in a middle or high school group on Wednesday June 24th 6:30-7:30 pm
If discussing with family and/or neighbors, get in touch with Matt for a discussion guide.
If you want to discuss with the youth group, we do have some safety precautions that we are requiring:
- Bring a mask (in case we end up inside for rain)
- Registration is required and we are limited to 8 youth participants for each group (plus 2 adults–that keeps us at 10 in case we have to go inside); we will create a wait list if we go above that.
- Although we will be outside, we will be practicing 6 feet of separation between individuals
- We will not be providing any food or drinks but you are welcome to bring your own
- Hand washing and sanitizer will be encouraged
- Youth participants will need to complete a Summer 2020 waiver (available below)
