PRAYER VIGIL FOR BLACK LIVES MATTER (BLM)
Beginning Jan. 9th, our Prayer Vigil will be the 2nd Sunday of each month at noon in memory of Jim Rogers.
We affirm the Annual Conference in its adoption of the fifth foci which is to “dismantle racism.” To this end we have been actively engaged in “Wrestling with Racism.” Members of our congregation have been and continue to be active on the conference Anti-Racism Team.
Our “Wrestling with Racism Team” is engaged in this very important work as our team members struggle to gain our own “anti-racism lens” and seek to lead the congregation to embrace an intentional “anti-racism lens.”
Thus our current over-arching goal is TO CREATE SUSTAINED ENGAGEMENT WITH ANTIRACISM IN OUR CHURCH. We are working to grow as individuals and as a team to discover ways to engage the broader congregation through a variety of means.
