Connecting in New Ways During This Season
Jesus and Justice 5 Week Virtual Small Group
This 5-week small group will meet via Zoom and learn about racism in America through scenes from the Netflix series, All American. Topics covered will include but will not be limited to: Anti-Racism, Racial Profiling, White Privilege, Police Brutality, Advocacy/Allyship and Equality vs. Equity. We will study scripture and discuss justice through a faith lens, so that we can love and better understand the perspective of our BIPOC (Black Indigenous People of Color) neighbors. We believe this topic has to be conversational, so please signup ONLY if you are committed to coming to at least 4/5 weeks.
Disclaimer: The All American Netflix show does a great job depicting the life and experience of an African American male; however, it is important we do not generalize or assume this show is everyone of color’s experience. The TV series is rated TV-14 and a few of the hand-selected scenes we plan to show do use a little bad language; however, the “F” word is not used. We believe a topic like racism is scandalous and cannot be too sugar coated. If you would like to know which scenes will be used, please send me a private request. We will not be watching the whole series, nor is that a prerequisite for joining this small group.
Time: Tuesdays @ 7:30-8:30pm
Start Date: June 16, 2020
End Date: July 14, 2020
Virtual Senior Sunday 2020
The youth team (and Britt Yett) set out to hand deliver Senior Blankets. While we were so sad at the loss of our traditional Senior Sunday, we cherished every prayer, social distance hug, tears and laughter that we got to have with each of our seniors and their families. Congratulations Seniors of 2020!
“Our church is blessed with a great bunch of young people and the MPUMC youth leadership team has done a terrific job. As a parent I feel fortunate to be part of a church with such a positive and involved youth program. Our girls and our family have certainly benefited from your ministry. I enjoyed the senior tribute video tribute you all sent out. Thank you for making the best of a tough situation with the 2020 graduates. They really have missed out on a lot.” Donnie Pickett (Parent of a Graduating Senior)
