A Conversation with our ISAIAH organizer, Vivian Ihekoronye

Vivian will be here to share with us what is happening in ISAIAH and how we can best be involved. Of special focus will be the content and intentions behind the upcoming gathering “Claiming Our Voices” on Saturday, January 19, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Minneapolis Convention Center. As a member church of ISAIAH, it is important we are aware of what is happening, and we can be a significant presence at their gatherings as well. Please join us.

Creating Vision Boards for 2019 with Laura L.

Similar to creating “soul cards,” this activity will be an opportunity to create a collage that expresses some of our hopes and dreams for the year to come; perhaps even some of our intentions. This creative session will include crafting a visual product to take home in order to be able to be inspired by the images gathered as we move through the year to come.

Jan. 20:

MICAH – Metropolitan Interfaith Coalition for Affordable Housing

This session will be a conversation with Sue Watlov Phillips, MICAH Executive Director; Gary K. Board President; Dee W. UCCNB member, about what affordable housing is, who needs it, what MICAH does, and what we can do to help. We are also a member church of MICAH, so please come and learn and be part of our presence with this important coalition.


There will be no Adult Education on this day.
