Summer Equipping

Equipping is a time for everyone in our community to receive training, and resources, and to learn together. Below are the opportunities being offered this Summer.

 

Peacemaking in Polarized Times

Led by Pastor Stephanie O’Brien, Pastor Gary Dawkins and Dr. Ramón Pastrano

Division and polarization are not new realities in the world, or in our communities. As we live our lives in our families, workplaces, schools and neighborhoods – how can we live as Jesus followers in divisive times? 

We are hosting inter-church dinners and training to be equipped with tools and training to be peacemakers where we live, work, learn, play and relate to others. 

The content for each gathering will be identical – so choose the one that works best for you and your family. You do not need to be a member of Mill City Church or Mercy Vineyard Church to attend. The event is free, dinner and childcare are provided. However, registration is necessary! 

Wednesday, June 26th 6:00-8:30 pm – hosted at Mill City Church 

Wednesday, July 17th 6:00-8:30 pm – hosted at Mercy Vineyard Church
