Unpacking the Story of Race
Tuesdays in November

6:00pm – 8:00pm

Resurrection Leawood Campus
Building B (The Foundry)
Room 260

Join members of Allies for Racial Justice as we seek to help you grow in your faith and begin to understand how to bridge the racial divide in our churches and cities. This popular three-part series encourages open discussion and will cover the following topics: 


  • That’s in the past; what does it have to do with me?
  • Implicit bias – what we don’t think we think.
  • What’s love got to do with it? Whose culture?


Classes will take place November 5, 12 and 19. 

Speaker: Debby Irving

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018 from 7:00-8:30pm in the Foundry (Building B) at the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection, Leawood KS

Debby Irving, author of “Waking up White” will speak at Grow Night, shares her personal journey of what it is to be white in a culture that thinks race is about being black. Her book is available for purchase in the Well Bookstore at the Church of the Resurrection. Invite your small group, friends, neighbors or co-workers for this important message.
