Raising White Kids: An Online Book Study

What do children need to understand about racism? How can white parents engage their white children in age appropriate conversations about racial injustice? Dr. Jennifer Harvey explores these questions and more in her book Raising White Kids: Bringing Up Children in a Racially Unjust America. Join us for this eight-week study!

For the first seven weeks, we'll work through the book, one chapter a week. We'll choose a weekly takeaway we can apply in our own families and check in with each other on how the effort went the next week before engaging in the new chapter. In the final week, we'll talk about engaging in conversations on race, not only from the perspective of being parents, but of being Christians and how our theology can help.

Pastor Anna will be facilitating these conversations and especially invites parents and teachers to participate!

Choose from one of the two group times:
• Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. from June 17 - August 5

OR

• Fridays at Noon from June 19 - August 7
Our Zoom link for the book study is located here.

The 14th Annual Downers Grove Garden Walk will be held online this year. It will give you an opportunity to preview some of the most beautiful gardens in the area in anticipation of next year's in-person (we hope!) Garden Walk. This Garden Walk is a fundraiser benefiting the Bridge Board of the Downers Grove First United Methodist Church.

This year's virtual Garden Walk will be a “sneak peek” of the gardens for 2021 with a professionally produced YouTube video to be posted beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 11. It will remain online through August 8. This sneak peek will feature gardens that would have been on this year's Garden Walk and will instead appear on the walk next year, when we can visit in person. Stay tuned for more information.

No ticket purchase will be necessary. There will be an option to donate online in support of our Bridge program and the families that we mentor, should you choose to do so. We appreciate your understanding and your generous support of this meaningful mission.

The Bridge Board is a program partner with Bridge Communities, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose focus is to transform the lives of homeless families by guiding them to a better future. This mission is accomplished by providing housing, mentoring, direction, hope, encouragement and a stable environment so that families may become self-sufficient and sustain their independence. Every family resides in DuPage County.
