Plan to join members of Transformation and Stone Hill Churches for the inaugural ColorBOLD Conference, Saturday, May 20, 9:00am- 12:30pm.
ColorBOLD will equip you with tools to better live out gospel unity across ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic lines. “As Christians, we do not want to ignore; we want to engage.” One of the beauties of this conference is that the speakers don’t claim to be formally-trained experts in these areas. ColorBOLD will not be an academic conference on the topic of unity. Rather, the emphasis will be on shared experiences, on real-life discovery, on doing life together with people of other backgrounds. Come and learn with us!
