Presbyterian Outlook Webinar: Helping Churches Talk About Racism

Presbyterian Outlook Webinar: Helping Churches Talk About Racism

Webinar.Racism.2019-10-29_500x500-2-400x400.jpg

90-minute Presbyterian Outlook webinar | Tuesday, October 29, 2019 at 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT (with on-demand video replay available after the live event)

Presented by Carolyn B. Helsel

If you are in one of the many predominantly-white Presbyterian congregations across the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), chances are that racism isn’t a topic that gets addressed from the pulpit unless there’s a major news event of a hate crime. Many people avoid talking about racism for a number of reasons: worry that they will say the wrong thing, the belief that avoiding the subject will make race less significant or the fear of creating conflict in the church.

In this webinar, participants will learn how to:

  • Tell their own stories of how race and racism have impacted their lives.

  • Name their own emotions as an important part of the process.

  • Create spaces in the church’s shared life together to work against racism.

Who should participate? Preachers, church leaders, Christian educators, youth leaders and all interested people of faith would benefit from this webinar as they seek to better understand the complexities of the sin of racism — and how we as Christians are called to work against it in our churches, communities and society.

I would like to take this time to invite you to apply for Partnership Day Camp for Summer 2020.

I'm happy to report that in 2019, we reached 360 kids across Colorado and Nebraska with the message of “Peace Works” and it was incredible!

I would love to hear about how your congregation has continued to minister to your community's children, and how Highlands program can help with that.

The method to apply is simple: Go to Highlands Camp website, click here , download and fill out the required forms, send them to Dot Strickland. Consideration for dates will be determined by the order applications are received, so please fill in ASAP.

If you are on the fence about this decision, I encourage you to call me at Highlands (303-747-2888) or send me an email (program@highlandscamp.org) and I will be happy to help clarify information regarding this experience. Spaces are limited and the deadline for applications is January 15th, 2020 so I encourage you to apply as soon as possible.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Paz y Justicia: Conversations with PC(USA) International Peacemaker from Cuba

We learned just this past week that our PC(USA) International Peacemaker, the Rev. Izett Sama Hernandez, from Cuba, has not been granted a visa by the US government, and therefore is unable to travel to Denver for the scheduled events.

We have cancelled the lunch/presentation at Arvada Presbyterian Church on Saturday, September 14 and the lunch/presentation at Highlands Camp and Conference Center on Monday, September 16. We are sorry for the inconvenience these cancellations may cause.

Central’s Cuba Team members will lead the Adult Faith Formation class at Central on Sunday, September 15, and Pastor Louise Westfall will preach on Matthew 25:31-46.

We remain hopeful about the potential for a Havana Presbytery/Denver Presbytery partnership and will continue to pursue it through learning and travel exchanges. Please continue your prayers for our brothers and sisters of the Reformed Presbyterian Church in Cuba.

Stated Assembly Meeting - May 28, 2019 - Arvada Presbyterian Church

2019 May Assembly Image Arvada with logo.jpg

Thank you to North Highland PC

for co-hosting!

Note: Location Change Due to Accessibility

The Assembly Work Group is trying a new thing in 2019.  We are attempting a new model for our assemblies that combine "worshipful work" and "eat and meet". We wish to hold the meetings in space that will accommodate tables and chairs for all present so that we can eat dinner and conduct worship and business in one room. The intent is to model the Assembly after Jesus' meals with the disciples. They ate, they talked, Jesus taught, and together they worshiped God. 

We have also become aware that we have unintentionally excluded those who have mobility issues. Access is restricted when the Assemblies have been held in spaces in which climbing stairs is required to eat the meal or attend the meeting. With all of this in mind, we have had to reconsider the previously chosen sites, with particular concern for those with mobility issues. We are grateful to the North Highland Church for their willingness to host the May Assembly meeting, but accessibility issues dictate that the location must be changed. This was a painful decision, and we offer our sincere apology to North Highland. The May meeting will be held at Arvada Presbyterian, to whom we give thanks for their willingness to host the Assembly on short notice.  

The Assembly Work Group is responsible for the selection of host churches where the meetings may be conducted efficiently, comfortably, hospitably, and where all who attend the meeting feel welcome.  In all that we do in Jesus' name, we covet your prayers.

Rev. Dana Hughes
Transitional Presbytery Pastor on behalf of the Assemblies Work Group

We will begin at 5:30 pm. The meeting will begin with a Call to Order and Prayer. Following the prayer we will share a meal together . After a time of fellowship we will be lead by Arvada PC in music, continuing us in worship and our Assembly Meeting.
