Conversations That Matter

Free

with Skye McFarland

Calendar Oct 22, 2020 at 7 pm

“Conversations that Matter” is a monthly on-line series from the McKinney Center. In each “Conversation” two local guests will explore their own culture and perspective, and talk to each other about what makes them unique, discover their similarities, and explore their differences. They will look at where their lives might intersect personally and in the community. The goal of each “Conversation that Matters” is for guests and participants to hear real stories, from real neighbors. Those who attend will get to watch this conversation unfold with moderation from Katelyn Yarbrough and Michelle Treece!

We are excited to announce that the fourth event in the series will feature Pastor from Bethel Christian Church in Jonesborough, Vincent Dial, and Pastor of Jonesborough Presbyterian Church, Allen Huff. It will take place via Zoom on October 22, at 7 pm.  

THE SYSTEM WILL ASK FOR YOUR BIRTHDATE- you can put any year in that you would like, this is a built-in part of our registration because we have kids classes, we apologize for the inconvenience.
