Thrives happen throughout the year, with topics ranging from how to share the gospel with your neighbors or how to practice a biblical approach to your finances. Sometimes they are gender or stage-of-life specific, and other times they are open to anyone in and outside of The Well church body.
Key leaders teach these seminars on fresh and relevant topics that challenge each of us to expand our knowledge, ask hard questions, and meet new people.
Check out our schedule below for upcoming Thrives this winter/spring. Click the RSVP links below to sign up for one (or more than one!) that interests you.
FALL 2020 THRIVE CLASSES
- Thrive: Race 101 "Creating A Common Memory" “Where common memory is lacking, where people do not share in the same past, there can be no real community. Where community is to be formed, common memory must be created.”
— George Erasmum, Dene Leader
George Floyd. Breonna Taylor. Ahmaud Arberry. How did we get here? In order to understand the current racial tensions in our country, we must look back to the past so that we can move ahead in the future. In Race 101: Creating a Common Memory, will begin by exploring a Biblical understanding of race, and then trace how a warped theological imagination created race and spread racism throughout colonial and American history. The class will learn about the formation of race in America, how the American church was often historically complicit in the spread of racism, and examine our own community’s history of racism in Silver Spring. Lastly, we will then listen to voices from different ethnic groups of how racism has impacted their communities in the past and present.Thursdays September 10th-November 19th 7:30-9pm via ZOOM.
