"Listen as a Group" with the 
Multicultural Committee

You are invited to help our classis and churches improve the ability of our organizations to listen to people from different generations, races, nations, and cultures by joining monthly discussions, via phone, or Zoom link. Contact Us to request the link to join in.

Committee members (Fred Mueller, Alex Arthurs, Marisol Ferrer-Malloy, and Liz Estes) moderate the calls, communicate guidelines and support respectful discussion.

Invite friends and neighbors who wish to engage in respectful dialog. 

We prepare in advance by reading, watching or listening to the resource we will discuss online.
