Sharing a sermon series across city and suburban churches promotes unity, while allowing various communities to wrestle with topics needed for tangible change.
How it will look
Each week pastors have access to the sermon content to prepare and offer to their congregations
Through onsite and online platforms, city and suburban churches are placed in clusters of 3-4 churches to study the small group content together as a diverse unit
Churches can host at their locations or meet online with other churches across the city/suburbs.

Participation Steps

Unity becomes a reality with consistent, intentional relationships. Churches/Orgs who teach shared sermons and city/suburban small groups get to learn first hand perspectives from different communities and develop relationships that build trust. This trust is a foundation for deeper work to heal divides across our cities and suburbs.
