This February, we encourage you to learn from and celebrate the experiences and contributions of Black Americans. While there are many ways you can do this, LifeChurch Auburn Hills has two specific opportunities.
Visit the Charles Wright Museum of African American History
Visiting the Charles Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit is an excellent way to immerse ourselves in the stories of Black Americans. Knowing history helps us understand the dynamics of race in America and in the Detroit area in particular today. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are restrictions on number of visitors in the museum. As such, LCAH has reserved 20 tickets that will be available on a first come first serve basis. Tickets are $10 a piece. LCAH staff will be hosting visits to the museum at 2 times during the month and each visit will conclude with a time of debriefing and reflection:
Saturday, February 13th @ 2pm
Saturday, February 27th @ 2pm
Please complete the form below to reserve space for a museum tour and discussions. If you would like to go at a different time, and/or we receive more requests for tickets than are reserved, we will do our best to coordinate additional groups to visit together.
Read and discuss the Color of Compromise
The Color of Compromise is a powerful account of the American church’s complicity in racism. Throughout history, white Christians have been some of the most ardent supporters of racist actions and policies against their black brothers and sisters. And, as Tisby argues, that legacy continues to impact our capacity to pursue reconciliation today. We invite you to read this book along with us this month, and join us for two discussion sessions which will be held Thursday, February 11th and Thursday, February 25th, both at 8pm. Please indicate below that you would like to be a part of the discussions so we can make sure we keep you in the loop!
