Communal Bible Study in Commemoration of Emanuel 9 Massacre

Group 236

The Metro D.C. Synod Racial Equity Team invites you to pause on June 17, 2021, at 7:00 PM (EST) as we commemorate the 6th anniversary of the massacre of the Emanuel 9 with a communal Bible study. Mindful of the deep presence of God at Mother Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, we will read the scripture that was part of the bible study in 2015, that night when Dylan Roof was welcomed as a stranger. Rooted in the Word and in small groups, we will ask what was God saying then and what is God saying now?

Attendance will be limited to allow for meaningful small group participation, but all materials will be posted after the event to allow for future congregational and other group use.
