1625 S. Columbian Way
Guest Speaker: Rev. Raafat Girgis, PCUSA Office of Multicultural Support
WHY be intentionally multicultural?
We are CALLED to be a multicultural church…
“... a house of prayer for all peoples ...” (Isaiah 56:7b)
“... all are one in Christ ...” (Galatians 3:28)
We are MANDATED to be a multicultural church….
“The Church is called to a new openness to its own membership, by affirming itself as a community of diversity, becoming in fact as well as in faith a community of women and men of all ages, races, and conditions, and by providing for inclusiveness as a visible sign of the new humanity.”
(Book of Order G-3.0401b)
Come hear and discuss the nuts and bolts of nurturing multiculturalism in your churches. Please RSVP to Eliana Maxim at Eliana@SeattlePresbytery.org or (206) 313-8669 by April 28 for lunch planning.
