Cultivating Thriving Community in Dallas
Michelle Kinder and Larry James
November 7 at 7:30 p.m.
As followers of Jesus, we are called to participate in God’s ongoing work of healing, transformation, and reconciliation. So, what exactly does that look like in the city where we live? What are the challenges and opportunities we face as a city and where and how is the church called to participate? Join us as Dallas leaders, Michelle Kinder and Larry James speak about the importance of social emotional health, valuing every neighbor, and the things that make for thriving community life for all people.
