Racial Healing & Reconciliation

Racial Healing & Reconciliation

“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples,
if you love one another.” - John 13:35

As we live our mission to be more like Jesus Christ for our
community and beyond, we recognize we have a role in “resisting evil, injustice, and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves” – both as individuals and as a congregation – and must actively work to eradicate injustice toward our neighbors.
