As a church, we confess our complicity and participation in the abhorrent sin of racism that has plagued our nation for over 400 years. We make the claim as people of faith that every person is a beloved child of God and is to be welcomed among us and to be treated with dignity and respect. We seek to respond from our faith perspective, as followers of the teachings of Jesus Christ, teachings that make it imperative that we speak humbly, but boldly, against injustice to God's children. Thus, we seek to engage in programming and study that leads to an experience of true equity for our neighbors of color.
Participate in our monthly Racial Justice Book Discussion Series where each month, over the course of three weeks, we engage in lively discussion on books written by leading experts.
All discussions are currently hosted using the Zoom online platform.
