Thank you for your faith and commitment to Jesus’ commission to “go make disciples of all nations.” God truly gave us an incredible, spiritual, diverse church. Yet we always strive to take his vision for unity deeper. I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. John 17:23
Over the last year and a half, the BCC Social, Cultural and Diversity (SCUAD) has been hard at work and is now excited to bring you People of All Nations: a Christ-centered, biblically based unity in diversity training course.
This program provides three, 2 hour discussions of how we can better achieve God’s dream of being a People of All Nations. Please register if you are able to attend all 3 sessions.
Those who enroll in the program will watch high quality video content on their own before they gather to discuss the materials in 2 hour large and small groups. The videos consist of history, teaching, preaching and moving testimonies from 60 different speakers of all ages and ethnicities from here in Boston and around the country. They are Bible-based, academic, spiritual and heart moving. All materials are in English and Spanish.
Content is available for viewing immediately after you register. This is a “flip the classroom” model that will allow us to maximize our 2 hour discussions when we come together.
Facilitated Discussions will be Saturday, April 1, 15 and 22 from 10 am to noon. (April 22 will add a final luncheon for us to evaluate the program.)
Discussion sessions are held at the Boston Church Building at 214 Concord Street in Framingham MA.
The minimal cost is $20 per individual, $30 per couple, and $10 for campus students which will go toward the lunch on the third and final session. We only have space for the first 60 people who enroll so don’t wait!
This program was produced with a tremendous amount of thought, prayer and viewpoints. Our church eldership, staff and regional SCUADs have already participated.
And now it’s your opportunity!
God has blessed us with a multicultural, multiracial church with disciples from many different backgrounds and viewpoints. We encourage each of you to participate. You’ll grow in your understanding of how to better connect with people who have different stories than you so we can glorify God in our deeper unity.
If you would like to know how to process and navigate crucial, sensitive and controversial topics of race and culture in a righteous way, then this course is for you! And please invite your brothers and sisters in Christ.
