Among Congregations for Children’s valued ecumenical partners is Knollwood Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, which sponsors a monthly one-hour event, “Faith in the City.” These well-planned and substantive programs are offered in person at the church and via Zoom. All are welcome to participate.
This year’s overall theme is “Education as a Public Good,” exploring the essential role that effective public education plays in building healthy communities and maintaining a strong democracy.
Once again, Rob Schofield, editor of NC Newsline and a frequent commentator on statewide issues, will be our kickoff speaker. He will highlight the historical strength of public education in North Carolina and how that strength is being eroded through decreased funding, teacher burnout, and community interference in curriculum and policy decisions.Faith in the City
This opening program will take place on Tuesday, October 3, from 12 pm – 1 pm at Knollwood Baptist Church and on Zoom.
Your C4C Committee encourages all NCCUMC members who care about our public school children and educators to attend this event, either live or on Zoom, as we live into our shared commitment to support and advocate for public education.
