The Adult Spiritual Growth Committee is hosting a series of workshops and discussions around Civil Discourse in an election year as our nation is deeply divided. The course materials have been gathered from the UCC website, Sojourners and other sources.
The course materials are being posted for those who are unable to attend the sessions scheduled after Sunday Service in September and October 2020. We will continue to update this information after each session.
The moderators are Russ and Ellen Green. For more information, please contact Ellen Green (firstname.lastname@example.org).
