One of our three goals is to improve race relations in Alabama; this event helps us do just that. At Person2Person, young people can learn and discuss together alongside lay leaders, clergy, and the Sawyerville directors. The group will participate in a pilgrimage across Montgomery, visiting sites that speak to our shared history and to the future of Alabama.
.The next Person2Person will be Friday, January 18 - Monday, January 21, 2019 in Montgomery, Alabama. Young people ages 16-20 who have staffed Sawyerville Summer Camp are invited to apply to attend. The online application will open in November and close in early January. Applicants will be admitted on a rolling basis so that participants can plan accordingly. Space is limited!
Participants can expect:
field trips to several historic and important sites around Montgomery
conversations on faith and race relations, the history of civil rights in Alabama, current civil rights issues, and what to do with the knowledge and experience gained over the weekend
meaningful worship and Bible study tied to the program
We will stay in a local church and meals will be provided. There is no cost for participants to attend, but donations are always welcome.
