Celebrating Black History MonthFebruary is Black History Month, and we want to celebrate the lives and legacies of African-Americans in our church and world. Mosaic, Willow's ministry focused on embracing diversity and promoting racial reconciliation, offers great opportunities for you to learn about the many cultures that make up our world.
“This month, we have multiple opportunities to learn about the contributions that African Americans have made throughout our society,” says Mosaic Director and Pastor Jared Wilkins. "Racial reconciliation is the bridge that connects us to fully experience God’s creative genius by bringing us into proximity with those who are different from us.”
“Allow your learning to continue beyond these events,” continues Jared. “Mosaic offers fantastic books, resources, and other content to help you grow. Simply email [email protected] and we will send our recommendations your way."
