9:15 am – Worship
Join us this Sunday for the conclusion of our worship series, “Body and Soul: Healthy Sexuality and the People of God”. This Sunday our guest preacher will be Annabeth Roeschley, who does theology focused on queering the relationships, beliefs, and ideologies that undergird systems of domination and oppression. Grounded in a decade of community justice and activist work, Annabeth situates queer anti-colonial liberation theologies at intersections of sexual violence, carceral capitalism, spatial justice, harm reduction, and politicized healing. Annabeth grew up in central IL and is a leader in Pink Menno’s work of queer justice activism within MC USA. Annabeth is a Master of Divinity Candidate at Chicago Theological Seminary with a concentration in lgbtq religious studies.
