Small Groups

As the COVID-19 Global Pandemic continues, we can still be together in community. Join us weekly for small groups! Some are virtual-only and some are hybrid (virtual and in-person). We will use the platform Zoom in which you can connect to the meeting using a computer, laptop, tablet, smart phone, or you can simply use your phone to dial in like a conference call! Below is the schedule for some of the many virtual small groups and what we will be studying. We hope you join us weekly to stay in connection with one another!

Race, Church, and Society - New Park Hill Discussion Group

·         Do you want to go deeper in your understanding of race and racism in American history, institutions and culture?

·         Are you willing to undertake with others a journey of self-discovery about your own attitudes around race and your unconscious biases?

·         Would you like to figure out how you can be a better advocate for justice in your community, your church, your country?

If so, join us as for a new monthly on-line discussion group entitled Race, Church, and Society.  The group will meet via Zoom on the 4th Monday of each month from 6:00-7:30 pm. Our next meeting is March 22nd.

For our meetings, we may read and discuss books, articles, and movies, watch Ted Talks, and share our own experiences.  We’ll also suggest at least one action you can take each month to support people of color who are on the forefront of this fight for greater justice.

Upcoming topics:


Our meeting will feature a discussion with Park Hiller and accomplished writer Manuel Aragon, who will read from one of his short stories. Based on his personal experience and family history growing up in Denver’s Northside. Manuel’s story exposes some of the complex and interrelated issues of gentrification and environmental harm that so often affect underserved communities. 

Manuel Aragon is a Latinx writer, director, and filmmaker from Denver, CO. He is currently working on a short story collection, Norteñas, a collection of speculative fiction short stories centered in the Northside, a Mexican and Mexican-American centered part of Denver, and the people, ghosts, and demons that live there. His work has appeared in ANMLY. His short story, "A Violent Noise," was nominated for the 2020 PEN/Robert J. Dau Short Story Prize for Emerging Writers. He is a 2021 Periplus Collective Fellow.

Manual is a graduate of NYU’s Maurice Kanbar Institute of Film and Television. His film work - writing and directing - has been featured on MTV, Pitchfork, and Stereogum. He most recently won the CineLatino Pitch Latino Award for Emerging Filmmakers with his web series, Welcome to the Northside, a comedic take on gentrification and Latino displacement in North Denver.
