Anti-Racism Resources

As a church, we join in lament over the loss of life of our Black siblings, and the ongoing realities of racial injustice in our country. In these days, we seek to have our eyes and ears open to the hard truths that are on display. We join our voices with calls for true transformation.

As Christians, we know that all people are made precious and in the image of God. As followers of Jesus, we hear his words, “whatever you did to the least of these, you did it to me.” As a church, we seek to live out our high calling in Christ to especially care for, listen to, seek out, and love those who are hurting, wounded or in need. In these days, we especially lift up our Black siblings, to affirm that their lives matter, and to seek to be part of bringing more light, love, and justice to our world.

We do this work imperfectly and inconsistently, and yet, led by our faith in Jesus Christ, we seek to be bold to pray, speak and work for justice.

We have been given a list of resources for all who need a starting point, a next step, or another point of view to take on this topic. We have included that list on our website, and you can find it at the link below.

The realities of racial injustice have always been with us, but are becoming more and more known and acknowledged. Please join us in prayer and action.

This document is intended to serve as a resource to help deepen our anti-racism work. If you haven’t engaged in anti-racism work in the past, start now. Feel free to circulate this document on social media and with your friends, family, and colleagues.
