Understanding our Changing World

Raising awareness

Part of our mission as Christians is to stay informed, understand our world and raise awareness with others so that we may serve more effectively. We continue to explore how we as a community can learn about other faiths, combat racism in ourselves and engage in conversations with people whose belief systems are very different from ours. To that end, we collaborate with other like-minded organizations to present seminars, book studies, lectures and experiences that will help create a community of reconcilers, justice-makers and healers.

Bridge Dinner

August 4, 2019, 6 – 8PM in the Parish House Forum Room, $30/person

Guests of all ages are welcome. Join us for an evening of international sharing as we partake of a delicious three-course meal prepared by local refugee moms from Somalia and Syria. We’ll hear about their journeys from a place they once called home to Lancaster County—why they left, how long it took, what it was like traveling with children, and the difficulties adjusting to a completely new way of life.

Seating is limited; registration deadline is Monday July 29th. Click here to register.

BRIDGE operates as an internet platform where families, businesses, and neighbors can book cultural experiences with refugee families. Every experience connects people to the culture, cuisine, and stories of refugees. Learn more about BRIDGE here.
