Fellowship Center for Racial Reconciliation

The Fellowship Center for Racial Reconciliation has been established to lead our church and community in the conversation and practice of racial reconciliation. The aim is to create a Gospel Centered environment that leads to active engagement in difficult conversations over a period of time that results in individual and systemic reconciliation.

We will create a space where we can engage through conversation, experiences, and learning.

How to Talk With Your Kids About Race
December 15, 2018 | 9:00 AM-12:30PM

Southern Civil Rights Tour 2019

At Fellowship we want to be a church that stands at the forefront and leads in the conversation on race, reconciliation and justice. One way that we do this is by taking a multiethnic, intergenerational group through the south on a Civil Rights Tour, where we aim to deepen our understanding of our history so that we can more effectively preach the gospel and make disciples. This tour has proven to be a transformative experience!

The 2019 Southern Civil Rights Tour will take place June 23, 2019 – June 30, 2019. Please note that in order to attend the Civil Rights Tour you must have participated in both workshops.  For more information, please email reconciliation@madeforfellowship.com.
