On World Communion Sunday, we celebrate the diversity of our congregation. Pastors Vance, Josias, and Sheryl shared with us about how important cross cultural relationships are.

Questions for Further Reflection and Conversation…

What non-work relationships do you have outside of your own cultural/ethnic identity?

What hinders you from developing relationships with people of other cultures, nationalities, ethnic backgrounds?

What do you value most about your own particular cultural experience?

Who do you know, from a different culture/ethnicity, that you could pursue a deeper relationship with?

How do you feel about First Church being a church of 30+ nationalities? How would you feel if First Church became increasingly multi-ethnic/multi-cultural? How would God feel about that?
