Biblical Justice for 2017

 The Biblical Justice Forum (BJF) is having very thoughtful discussions of our culture's and church's racism and white privilege. We are using the book Waking Up White by Debby Irving and other books/articles which give us disturbing examples of other racism acts. Please join us in the Church library Sunday's at 3:30 pm.

Jennie Belle, Program Director for Immigration and Farmworkers, has been fielding questions about the issue. To help those who want to learn more, she has developed…

IPMW CONCERT EVENT

CONVICTION:  SONGS OF FAITH FROM WOMEN IN PRISON

APRIL 7 AT THE RALEIGH LITTLE THEATRE

In the summer of 2016, one of IPMW's chaplains offered

"Singing a New Song" for the women in the prison, led by local pastors/musicians.  Eight women competed this 10-week course and, as a group, wrote and composed over 25 songs that tell the stories of how and why women come to be incarcerated as well as the depth of their spiritual response to the reality of imprisonment.  This concert will be a unique opportunity to hear original songs and testimony, as well as to see the impact of IPMW's ministry on the Raleigh unit.

 

All proceeds raised in this benefit event will be used to support new areas of transition and re-entry efforts with IPMW to support women once they are released from prison.
