Learning to Be an Antiracist (offered through Redeemer East Harlem)
Registration closed | Thursday, June 11-July 2 at 8-9:30 p.m. online

As the body of Christ, we are grieved over the cycles of racial inequality and injustice that continue to pervade our society. In response, we want to proactively equip our congregants to have a long-term, holistic approach to addressing racism at the systemic level. Justin Adour, pastor of Redeemer East Harlem, will be teaching a four-week class to help us better understand how to move past a simple acknowledgment that racism is evil to learning what it means to become a proactive anti-racist.
Please note, we are asking participants to engage with resources (e.g., books and videos) outside of class. REH has committed to helping our congregants purchase materials as needed. Though the completion of these resources is not required, they will greatly enhance your understanding of the issues. You're not expected to finish a book each week, but please read what you can and engage with the material more fully post-class.

Missional Moments Q&A
days have become a blur, and many sense a need for rhythms that will
help us emerge from this season transformed. Missional Moments is a
weekly Q&A with Senior Pastor Abe Cho and the East Side pastoral
team, who will respond to your questions about the five transformative
practices that draw us to God and send us into the world. We are calling
them practices of PEACE, an acronym which stands for Pause, Eat, Ask,
Commune, and Examine.
COVID-19 has changed our world in many ways, especially our interactions with families, friends and even ourselves. In this workshop, we explored ways to counsel ourselves when we are feeling anxious, uncertain, depressed, angry, or other concerning emotions. Through the practical application of scripture and prayer in specific circumstances, you will understand God and your own heart in new ways. Led by Lois Kehlenbrink, a counselor of 20+ years.
In this workshop, we discussed how to persevere in parenting in the midst of the changes and losses COVID-19 has brought to our lives. Led by family therapists, a doctor and pastoral leaders join us to gain understanding and tools to parent well.
