165. MissionCast – Conversations On Religion & Race – First UMC, Webster Groves

 ***There is more…don’t miss the additional video with more information below.

The Missouri Conference Values Team reviewed a new program designed to initiate conversations on religion and race in congregations.  Instead of organizing a workshop on how to implement this program in local churches the team decided that it would be better for a congregation to actually use the program and tell other congregations about their experience.  First United Methodist Church, in Webster Groves, with great success, piloted this new program for our conference.  This MissionCast is designed to give you a taste of what it was like.  Rev. Michele Sue Shumake-Keller will be sharing her congregation’s experience in detail during one of the workshops at Annual Conference.
