Dear Church Small Groups


New Small Groups to discuss Dear Church
Let’s learn to listen actively, ponder empathetically, and grow as individuals and as a community, by having powerful conversations, with love in our hearts.

Be a part of a growing ministry at Nativity: self-contained, small groups that are discussing a book called Dear Church, by Lenny Duncan. Duncan is a black ELCA pastor who writes a love-letter to the whitest denomination in the United States and draws a direct line between the church’s lack of diversity and its lack of vitality. The problems we face are theological, not sociological, and he offers a bold new vision for our ELCA denomination.

You can find a copy through the Augsburg Fortress or on Amazon. If purchasing a Book is a barrier, please let us know!

Groups will meet for one hour, once a week for six to seven weeks. No need to read the entire book in advance of the 1st meeting.

The Sunday morning small group begins on September 13th. All other small groups will begin once they reach a minimum of 5 people.

Indicate your interest in a meeting time below and we will connect with you on your group’s start date.

There are multiple small group meeting times available. You can indicate which time works best for you.
