CEOs of Tomorrow
Sunday, March 8 at 9:30am; Adult Ed Room
What is this all about? Come learn about a relatively new non-profit program at our Adult Education session on March 8. The program is designed to help youth unlock their entrepreneurial gifts and use them to make the world a better place. In the process they earn real profits. They do this by developing their own revenue-generating business ideas to address social issues of importance to them.
As might be anticipated, this has been the initial motivator but the program also offers benefits for college and career preparation and cultural understanding. The founding director, Roxie Hentz, Ph.D will share some of the unexpected joys of working with these teens. To learn more about the program, visit www.CEOsOfTomorrow.com

“When the Diagnosis is Racism”
Sunday, March 15, 2020 at 9:30 am; Adult Ed Room
Feeling helpless about racism? Ever wonder what you can do about it? Everyone is invited to an adult education session on Sunday, March 15, 2020 at 9:30 am to learn how other congregations and community folk are addressing racism. Joann Pritchett, Ph.D, a retired educator and an originator of the program will speak to us about how our church community can begin a healing journey.
We invite you to join in this practical, non-judgmental conversation as she poses simple questions to ponder in healing racism. Examples: How was racism taught to me as a white person? What spoken or unspoken words and gestures have I used to talk about people who are different from me? What benefits have accrued to me as a white person?
Here is an opportunity for all of us to “dig deeper”!!
