A Message from Pastor Lindsey
Dear Parents and Grandparents,
As we began a discussion about how parents could talk to their kids about racism, many of you expressed interest in forming a Facebook group where we could engage on this topic together.
That group has been created and we would like to invite you to join us at:
UMC Parents Talk About Racism
Hosted by Christ Church United Methodist and Santa Rosa First United Methodist Church, this group is a space for our parents to share resources, ideas, struggles and victories in talking to our kids about racism.
You are also welcome to invite parents from outside our church circles who are interested in being part of this discussion. A few simple guidelines for kind and respectful communication are posted in the group.
We hope that you will join in this conversation with us, and that this group will be a valuable resource to the parents and families in our church community.
Join people of faith in taking
a stand against racism,
by beginning with our own
"Me and White Supremacy" Book Club
Every Wednesday, 10:00-11:00 AM starting June 17th and ending July 22nd.
Rabbi Stephanie Kramer and Pastor Lindsey Bell-Kerr will lead discussion on Layla F. Saad's "Me and White Supremacy".
Please remember that although our doors are temporarily closed, the work of Christ Church goes on as we continue to provide care for members of our community during this time. Like many organizations, we will be facing financial hardship from loss of rental income.
Honoring your pledge commitment is essential to our work. Please continue your support by mailing your check to CCUM, 1717 Yulupa Ave, Santa Rosa 95405 or dropping it thru the office mail slot. Or, if it's easier for you, make arrangements with your bank for automatic bill pay.
Questions? Email email@example.com.
Your consistent support is much appreciated at Christ Church
and throughout our community. Thank you!
Come join us in worship! We gather on-line Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. (see link above)
Our worship is a time to be present to God, to celebrate the gift of community, and to grow in our spiritual lives. After the service, join our Time for Reflection group as they explore the deeper meanings of the worship message.
Music invites us to move deeply into our worship life together! Our congregation loves to sing contemporary hymns. Our choir, led by Carol-Jean Boevers, inspires us with a variety of offerings. Musical instrumentalists, including our talented accompanist, Carl Sokol, join in to enhance the worship experience.
Holy Communion is often celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. You do not need to be a member of Christ Church United Methodist or any church to receive the bread and cup.
All are welcome at God's table.
