Great Schools Are Diverse Schools: An Evening with Nikole Hannah-Jones

Nikole Hannah-Jones, a nationally recognized investigative journalist who covers civil rights for The New York Times Magazine, provides a compelling case for school diversity, and has decades of experience studying segregation in education to back it up. Our city and suburban districts are considering plans to form socioeconomically diverse schools. This public event is an important milestone in an ongoing conversation on how we can dramatically restructure education in our community so it works for all students. ► register for event

Exploring Membership Luncheon

Four times a year, we host these luncheons designed for people new to the congregation to learn more about life and ministry at Third Church. We eat together and have conversation that introduces you to our community, gives you a chance to ask questions, and lets you get to know our pastoral staff, a few members of the church, and other folks new to this place. Attending a luncheon carries no obligation for you to join in membership; the emphasis is on exploring.

Our luncheon conversation will conclude at 1:30pm. For those that are ready to join in membership, the next step is a New Member Gathering offered at two different times (1) that same afternoon following the luncheon from 1:30-2:30pm, or (2) on the new member Sunday, October 22 at 8:30am.

For more information, contact Lynette Sparks (271-6513 ext. 106) or
