Sharing ideas for education and outreach on race

Do Good Roseville, a community networking group that Falcon Heights Church is involved with, will bring area faith communities together Thursday, Sept. 14, to share ideas for education and outreach related to race. The gathering is from 9 to 11 a.m. at Roseville Lutheran Church, 1215 Roselawn Ave. W.

Our congregation has been involved in this issue for some time, including hosting community meetings following the death of Philando Castile in Falcon Heights.

“We know that many of the faith communities in the Roseville area have held educational programs, book clubs, and other outreach events to further understanding of race and other topics related to our changing community,” the group’s event flyer says. “We would like to bring together as many faith communities as possible to share your experiences, ideas and resources.”

Our Outreach Ministry Team has been working with Do Good Roseville particularly in the area of immigrants’ needs in our community. Nancy Duffrin (nduffrin@gmail.com) plans to attend the Sept. 14 meeting and can answer questions. RSVP to Kathy Ramundt at kramundt@hotmail.com or 651-488-5061.
