Racial Equity Events

The small number of registrations meant we have to cancel the Racial Equity events scheduled for Christmount August 18 – 19 and Chestnut Ridge September 10 – 12.    We have to have a minimum number of participants (40) in order to pay the trainers as well as provide a quality experience. The financial loss to the Region was greater than we can bear right now.  Next year as we plan events we may plan to have a training scheduled in a local congregation.

The event at Camp Caroline is still going to happen as scheduled.  Note the Friday session will end around 10:00pm and Saturday session will begin at 8:30am.

There is still the opportunity to register for the event at Camp Caroline Aug. 25 and 26.  You can download the registration form here. Remember that this is required once every three years for all clergy to maintain standing in North Carolina.…
