EdNC. Essential education news. Important stories. Your voice.

Open doors: The parish mentality

Edenton Street United Methodist Church understands there is not a one-size-fits-all type of worship service. They have created micro-parishes, based on the idea of leaning into the neighborhoods around Raleigh. Hear from Lisa Yebuah, minister at Southeast Raleigh Table, about how her congregation does its part to “love up on the schools” in the area. 

“We do have in our DNA this idea of always connecting what we do within the four walls outside of the four walls.”

Stay tuned all week for profiles on people, churches, and programs that lie at the intersection of faith and education. We’ve also started a Twitter page that is dedicated to stories and conversations surrounding this topic. Feel free to follow at @EdNC_Faith
