In a day when racism plagues our culture, it’s essential to be focused on solutions. This panel brings together voices from the non-profit sector, the church, the academy, and civil government for straight talk on how we can overcome racism in Mobile and beyond.

The panelists are Diane McCaskey, Executive Director of Family Promise; Dr. Kern Jackson, Director of African-American Studies at the University of South Alabama; Scott Moore, Pastor of Trinity Family Church; and Karlos Finley, attorney and candidate for Circuit Court judge. The panel will be moderated by Dr. Matt O’Reilly, Pastor of St Mark United Methodist Church.

This event is free and open to the public. Child care provided.

The panel will also launch a four week sermon series at St Mark Church during the month of January on the topic: “Redemption in Black & White: How Jesus Heals Racism.” Join us on Sundays in January at 10 am for traditional worship or 11:15 for contemporary worship to hear these sermons:

New Series: Follow

What does it mean to follow Jesus? Why would you want to? Where are we going? How much does it cost? Who’s invited? What difference does it make?

Those are the questions we’re asking in this 4 week series on following Jesus.

New SermonCast: Don’t Be the Judge

Everyone knows what it’s like to feel judged. We can be honest about that. We’re less likely to admit when we’ve been judgmental towards others. Tune in to this week’s SermonCast to learn how the gospel rescues us from judgmental attitudes.

New #SermonCast: Who’s Your Friend?

Different people think of God in different ways. For some, God is a grandfatherly man upstairs. For others, God is an angry deity just waiting for us to trip up. James challenges those notions with a vision of God’s deep passion for people, a vision of a God who’d rather have friends than servants.
