Kingdom Story Fellowship, First Presbyterian Church Houston, Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church, and City Church in partnership with The Center for Racial Reconciliation, present this workshop designed to introduce participants to the deceptive and destructive effects of racism. These issues affect our communities, our lives, and our churches, so join us for an opportunity to learn and experience the work of racial reconciliation within a biblical framework. Having become convinced that race remains a salient factor in shaping our society, we will take the next steps in becoming active participants in dismantling racialized systems of disparity in order to become reconciled.
$30 per person includes all materials, snacks, and lunch on Saturday. Scholarships are available.

Challenges & Solutions to Reconciliation
