Community Conversations (with Lyle Foster)

We’re pleased to welcome Lyle Foster to Brentwood this Sunday (Feb. 21) as we kickoff our first in a series of “Community Conversations” designed to help us reflect on how our congregation can meaningfully engage — and make a difference in — the most pressing issues facing our community. These conversations will take place during the regular sermon time, and will consist of a dialog with local community leaders, facilitated by Phil. This week we’ll address challenges related to poverty and racism in Springfield.
