Covenant Presbyterian Church - Charlotte, NC


Dr. Jemar Tisby

On February 10 and 11 we welcomed author, historian, and dynamic speaker Dr. Jemar Tisby to speak at Covenant. Dr. Tisby delivered a powerful keynote, faith formation lecture, and sermon. During his time with our community, he encouraged us while challenging us to commit to tangible action steps on racial justice. Speaking about the ARC of racial justice (Awareness, Relationships, and Commitment) Dr. Tisby encouraged us all to get involved in all three areas. One immediate action step to get involved is signing up to participate in a “Growth Group” where participants will engage in a 6-week study of Dr. Tisby’s videos.
GROUP STUDY: "The Color of Compromise"
Wednesdays, February 21 - March 27 in Fellowship Hall
6:30 - 7:45 p.m.
Our time with Dr. Tisby was so inspiring we decided to create a second study to continue discussing his work. This group is for those who attended our first group and for those who didn't. Everyone is welcome. This six-week "Growth Group" study will use his video series based on The Color of Compromise. We'll watch the video together, then break into small groups for discussions. Not sure about joining? Watch this trailer to get a feel for the video study.
