The Family Tree Starts October 21
Have you ever felt left out? We're compelled by the idea that there's a different way to be together as community. We see a world where everyone belongs. A world where everyone’s picture has a spot on the family tree. Join us this fall as we celebrate being this kind of family. And may you each come to know you’ve got a spot on the family tree.

I’m Still Here: Black Dignity In A World Made for Whiteness
All are invited to join Pastor Jenny in this book study and conversation on Austin Channing Brown’s new book. Austin’s first encounter with a racialized America came at age 7, when she discovered her parents named her Austin to deceive future employers into thinking she was a white man. This powerful book is a great jumping off point to ask questions, share experiences and listen deeply to the other perspectives. Videos will get us started so come even if you can’t keep up with the book! Wednesdays, October 17 - November 14, 6:30pm at church. Sign up at www.marysvilleumc.org/groups or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Join us for this free gathering on Tuesday, October 30 from 6:30-8:30pm at Marysville United Methodist Church. Learn more.
