Advent Listening Groups

In our noisy world that demands our attention and focus in pulling, often conflicting directions, Listening Groups are a space to Listen to God. You will hear gospel passages and spend time in quiet, listening to what you notice as you reflect and listen to one another. We invite you to a space of restoration where in small group community you will experience reflection, grace, affirmation and support. All are welcome to slow down and discern the Spirit’s voice in our lives.

Dates: Sunday, December 2, 9, 16 & 23

Time: 5:00-7:30, light dinner provided

Please Register by Sunday 11.25.18

Unpack: Incarceration Pt 1

Join us, Sunday October 14th, to watch and discuss the documentary "The IF Project", a collaboration between Law Enforcement, currently and previously incarcerated adults, and community partners focused on intervention, prevention and reduction in incarceration and recidivism. This project is based on the question: If there was something someone could have said or done that would have changed the path that led you here, what would it have been?

Prior to the movie starting at 12:30PM, a simple lunch will be available at noon. Following the movie, there will be a time to hear from one of the women featured in this documentary, and to have discussion in small groups. It promises to be an impactful afternoon.

Childcare is available and will provide age-appropriate activities that allow the kids to engage in the topic of incarceration.

This event is FREE to all, though donations will be accepted to help cover the cost of the movie, food, and childcare. Tickets found here.

 Broken Systems: The Problem with Cash Bail (and What You Can Do About It)
Jul

Broken Systems: The Problem with Cash Bail (and What You Can Do About It)

Cash bail was originally designed to make sure that people charged with a crime would return to court for trial.  In reality, however, bail has created a deeply divided legal system.  People who cannot afford the cost of bail are faced with a lose-lose choice: plead guilty, even if innocent, and be denied your day in court; or remain in jail until trial and risk losing your job or children. But our neighbors at the Northwest Community Bail Fund are working to change this.  The NCBF provides bail for certain people unable to pay, helps navigate the legal process, and advocates for bail reform.  Please join us for an evening led by Kimberly Ambrose, senior lecturer at the University of Washington School of Law and director of the Race and Justice Clinic, as she educates us on the present reality of the cash bail system, what the NCBF is doing to combat the injustice inherent in that system, and what you can do to support their work.
