Black Lives Matter Film Series | Dear White People @ https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86116129775?pwd=VFRFcUExdmxPemZZTDJPSzdBeGR2QT09
Sep 25 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

The discussion will begin at 7:00 PM – led by filmmaker, community organizer, and co-founder of Mobilize Medford, Crystal Chandler.

Zoom Access: us02web.zoom.us/j/86116129775?pwd=VFRFcUExdmxPemZZTDJPSzdBeGR2QT09

Watch the film on your own time this week – and join discussion facilitator, Crystal Chandler for a provocative conversation: Friday, September 25 (7 – 9 pm)

Note this is a change in time and model to simplify the structure and allow for more time for discussion and learning!  

With the current social conditions present in both local and global perspectives, it is essential now to educate ourselves and act deliberately to be anti-racist. Sanctuary UCC is partnering with Hillside Community Church to bring you the Black Lives Matter Film Series.

This collection of films will deconstruct and frame an understanding of the inherent power structures in America and the effects this debilitating system has on communities and people of color. Please join us in listening, understanding, and acting in dismantling what racism is in our community.
~~~

ABOUT THE FILM

The lives of four black students at an Ivy League college.  
 
It’s true that satire is the perfect weapon of reason, and Justin Simien deploys it with resourcefulness, cool assurance and eagle-eyed aim.


“Here’s a film that refreshingly acknowledges various elephants in cinema’s crowded living room: racism, the interracial sex taboo and class war.”

Scripture: 1 Timothy 3

Theme:  I LoveJesus But Hate… (Some) Church Leaders

The truth is, most every time someone has been hurt by the church (and let’s face it, over the course of three millennia that has happened – a lot!) it has been because some church “leader” has fallen prey to some form of ego, sex, money, or power. It started at the beginning and has been causing folk to run from the church since then! In 1Timothy3 Paul emphasizes leadership and the well-ordering of the church as the “pillar and buttress of the truth.” So why is it so hard for church folk to be servants that build-up God’s Body and a source of strength for Jesus’ followers?

Prayer for This Sunday: Most loving and inviting God, you gather us from the four winds, and for each one brought to your ‘house’ we rejoice. For, from the beginning, you said it isn’t good for us to try to go through life alone, and so at creation you created for us partners to journey together. As Your Body we gather as pilgrims journeying together, sharing our faith, our joys and our concerns. We hold one another up when times are hard and celebrate when times are good. Together, we share a bond, commitment and purpose that unite us and make us stronger. For all these things and many more, we thank you, gracious Redeemer, Healer and Comforter. Amen.

Annual Visioning Meeting (9/27) @ https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82466321427?pwd=LzBuOHk1dnUwK2FUWVhjZC9tVTZ4UT09
Sep 27 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The Officers and Leadership Circle of the Congregational Church of West Medford | Sanctuary UCC issue this call to the 2020 Annual Congregational Visioning Meeting as defined by our by-laws, the schedule for which was adjusted in a Special Congregational Meeting on 5/31/2020.

 As per the bylaws, the purpose of this annual Visioning Meeting is to: 

a) Review and assess the congregation’s mission, ministries, objectives, and goals; and

b) Make adjustments as called for from the dialogue and discernment. (Article IV. Section B).

 The Leadership Circle and Discernment Team have developed a visioning process centered in scripture and contemplative prayer (should we Link to the practice instructions?). The model will be used over the next year as a congregation-wide spiritual practice, a way to orient our faith and our ministry, and a path to discernment – for now and for the future.

The visioning process begins in an initial meeting (9/27), continues in small prayer circles, reconnects to the whole (10/25), returns to small prayer circles and will continue in this cycle as discernment unfolds in the midst of Covid19 and the safety measures we must practice.

Signed by Joanna Begin, Moderator on behalf of the Leadership Circle

“Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination.” – Plato

As teachers and musicians who have worked with all types of students, we believe the most important aspect of learning an instrument is that the student enjoys him/herself. Lessons are fun, interactive and creative, and we encourage students to use their natural curiosity to explore music. Our studio is a relaxed and comfortable setting where lessons are tailored to the learning style and musical interests of each individual student.

Sanctuary UCC has partnered with Medford Music Studio in the community and have collaborated on events in the past. If you’re interested in exploring their services, please check out their website!
