November 8 Group Meeting
Our November meeting is filled with food, fellowship, music, and fun. But it’s so much more than that!
You’ll be hearing from two incredible organizations, Disability Motivational Network and Heart of the City, as they present their missions and invite you to contribute ideas and connections to help them grow and expand their impact.
Our musical guest is Heart of the City Band who has been using music as a tool to unite since 1996! Their Mission is “To bring a message, model and experience of multi-ethnic worship and Biblical unity to Christians, and the Gospel to those who are not Christians yet.”
We will also hear from keynote Mauri Friestelben, Principal of North High School and star of the documentary, Love Them First. Friestelben has a passion and commitment to creating educational atmospheres for students that breathe and breed academic and social integrity, rigor and compassion. She leads in ways that could be described as both soft and firm; pushing and pulling; loud and quiet. She attended her early years of education on the North Side of Minneapolis and finished on the South side; all within the Minneapolis Public School district. Regardless of where Mauri finds herself, her life’s work centers around using the power of love to overcome achievement gaps and alter the trajectory of students in her community.
