July Arts and Inspiration
The Next Installment of the Black Lives Matter Film Series!
Just Mercy
Watch on Netflix via Zoom or Come to Hillside!
Friday, July 17 @ 6:00 pm

To keep everyone safe, we will be implementing existing and required safety measures; such as social distancing of 6ft between groups and requiring everyone to wear masks.

There will be physical space for the outdoor film series for 24 "family groups" which can range from 1 to 4 people. (We will mark off 6x6 spaces for each family group). We also have space on Zoom - Zoom registrants will join for gathering time -- access will be needed to watch the film at home -- and return to Zoom for breakout conversations to happen concurrently with conversations happening in the outdoor space.

Bring your own chairs (preferably beach/low chairs so people can see behind you), blankets, snacks, and drinks. The church will only be open for the rest room.

If weather conditions are inconvenient, all will move to Zoom (meaning access will be required at home through Netflix, Amazon, etc.).
"How to be an Antiracist" Book Study
“racial inequity is a problem of bad policy, not bad people.”
Sanctuary UCC and Hillside invite you to a virtual study and action group on behalf of becoming antiracist and supporting our faith communities and the City of Medford to make antiracist policy changes! Beginning July 21, 2020, we will read and discuss Ibram X. Kendi’s “ How to be Antiracist“.
Based on the overwhelming amount of support and interest in this series, we have created four group meeting times to fit your schedule.
Groups led by Tom Hathaway and Susan D'Arcy Fuller will occur every two weeks, creating a 4-week session, while groups led by Wendy Miller Olapade and Bob Elliot will occur on a weekly basis for 8 weeks.
Choose the 75-minute series session that works for you and let's discuss this impactful work as we make transformative adjustments in our perspectives.
