Shawnee United Methodist Church is on a spiritual journey to Connect, Equip, and Restore in the name of Jesus Christ
Our mission is to CONNECT people to the Father through the power of worshipping Him, and to connect people with one another. We EQUIP disciples in intentional faith by forming groups and organizing our lives in such way to be generous in the work God has for us. We will RESTORE our community by undertaking challenging missions to spread the word of Jesus’ love, and by doing works of justice to put that love into action.
Shawnee UMC – Return To Worship Guidelines can be found here! We are currently worshipping together! Both services, 9 & 11, are offered. To protect our most vulnerable members we will be following strict social distancing guidelines. This will include the wearing of masks so we may safely practice public singing and liturgy (masks will be available to those who do not have one). Nursery care & Kids Ministry are currently not available.
Beginning Sunday, July 12th, you are invited to join Pastor Bryan via zoom in a discussion of the book “White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard For White People to Talk About Racism” by Robin DiAngelo.
Join Zoom Meeting: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/8226159810
DiAngelo is a white woman who does coaching and instruction for institutions, corporations, and not-for-profits on the subject of racism. Her years of experience working, particularly working with white audiences, led her to write this book about difficulties she’s encountered helping people discuss matters of race. You are welcome to pick up a copy of the book (online wherever you buy books) and join us for a discussion three successive Sunday evenings (July 12th for Chapters 1-4, July 19th for Chapters 5-8, and July 26th for Chapters 9-12) from 7-8(ish)pm via Zoom.
Our friends Dr. LaMont Monford and Pastor Daniel Hughes will be joining us for some of our conversations. Here is the link for the Zoom conversation, and if you need help to set up Zoom on your computer, IPad, Tablet or Smart Phone.
