At a pivotal time in our nation, the Hills Church seeks to build on a tradition of racial justice ministry by providing knowledge and competencies for racial reconciliation. This training model has been planned by the Racial Justice Working Group, appointed by Church Council to implement next steps for our congregation to support racial justice, continuing the tradition of the church’s founding as an abolitionist church in 1847.
All sessions will be held on zoom, with presentations from our trainers, discussion, and break- out rooms. Friends and neighbors are invited. These are resources that we want to share with the broader community. It is recommended, but not required, to attend all three sessions.
