In the midst of a turbulent political atmosphere and a divided country, community members in the Roanoke Valley are seeking unity. Q Commons, a national event that exists to advance good by educating people on how they can bring hope and leadership to their communities, is coming to Roanoke on Thursday, October 25.
Hosted by Bonsack Baptist Church, Journey Church along with many other area churches, Q Commons will center around ‘The Power of We’. Along with over 100 other cities hosting the event this year, Roanoke will livestream a variety of speakers, including author Bob Goff, author and church planter Jo Saxton, and Scott Harrison, founder and CEO of charity:water.
Topics will include caring for our neighbors, hospitality and solving problems together. Local speakers will include Ray Moore, founder of 127 Place, a Southwest Virginia Christian Alliance for Orphans, Mayor Bethany Lackey, Executive Director of Roanoke Refugee Partnership, and Charles Wilson, and Lead Pastor of Hill Church of Roanoke. Charles will speak on ‘Racial Reconciliation’. In an effort to create a more unified Roanoke Valley, several opportunities for discussion will be offered throughout the evening.
Q Commons will be held on Thursday October 25 from 7-9 PM at Jefferson Center in Fitzpatrick Hall, 541 Luck Ave SW Roanoke, VA 24016. For more information or to purchase tickets visit qcommons.com/roanoke. All proceeds from the event go to offset the price of the national broadcast.
