The Church and the Racial Divide

Sundays at 4:00pm in  Room 102/105
Class Length: 6 weeks  |  Materials Cost: $16

Many Christ-followers think deeply and talk earnestly about racial reconciliation and wonder, “how can the Church be a healing force in our culture?” This issue is not so different from every issue the Church faces when addressing our culture. This 6-week journey will feature video teaching from key Gospel-leaders who discuss race, culture, and the gospel. Together we will learn about racial reconciliation and be equipped to be part of the solution. Together we’ll grow in:

  • Understanding how the gospel of Jesus Christ applies to racial tension, differences, and reconciliation.
    Sensitivity for people of different backgrounds.
  • Our ability to resist apathy and move past fearfulness on an important issue.
  • Our appreciation of the culture and background of all brothers and sisters in Christ.
  • Understanding race as an important topic that should be explored as a normal part of life for a disciple of Jesus.
  • Seeing God’s vision of a people from every nation, tribe, and language.
  • Learning to minister across ethnic and cultural lines.

This six-week study will utilize the work of Tim Keller (via DVD) in a discussion with six people who have doubts and objections to Christianity. Using literature, philosophy, and Scripture, Keller and the group explore the truth of Christianity. Throughout the study, you will be challenged to wrestle with your friends and neighbors’ hardest questions, and to engage those questions in ways that will spark an honest, enriching, and humbling dialogue.
