Faith Forum

We hope you will join us at Brentwood United Methodist Church on Saturday, February 8, for a community-wide conversation on how we as Christians can and should address racism in our communities. The morning will include individual speakers, panel discussion, worship, and group conversations at round tables. We hope you will be a part of this much-needed conversation to see our churches come together and see what God has in store for us as the Church.
