Racial Justice

"But let justice roll down like waters,
and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream."
- Amos 5:4

All racism is sin. All Black lives matter. All of us must be antiracist.

Getting Involved

We believe that our faith as Christians must necessarily embody antiracist actions. After the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, we began the Church-Wide Engagement group on Wednesday nights at 6 PM. We started with a 3 month discussion on Dr. Ibram X. Kendi’s How to Be an Antiracist. We are currently identifying specific ways to be antiracists in our Worcester community. We are inviting leaders from our community to teach us about the inequities in our systems (educational, judicial, law enforcement, healthcare, housing, etc.) as we seek to advocate for antiracist policies. The Wednesday meetings are open to all, and you do not need to have attended prior meetings to join.
