The Finding Fellowship Series is a two-month program centers around local filmmaker Jason Green’s 60-minute documentary,
Finding Fellowship. The film tells the story of how three racially-segregated Methodist churches–two white and one black–merged into one in the wake of Dr. King’s assassination. The documentary highlights our need as a community and a culture to preserve stories, memories, and lessons of the past in order to shape our future.

"We live under the tremendous weight of slavery now. And what we're talking about is not Black history. This is our nation's history. It's my history. It's your history."
