JUSTICE & RECONCILIATION
AT FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH
With the recent turmoil in our nation around racism and social justice, we have turned our focus to these issues. One of the 4 priorities of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) has been and continues to be “Becoming a Pro-reconciling/Anti-Racist Church”. You can find more about the church’s ministry here, including suggestions for reading, news, and information about how to support the work this ministry does: Reconciliation Ministry
We continue to meet to talk about ways our church can be engaged in reconciliation in our own community. We’d like to offer the following suggestions, linked below. You can use these in your own personal reflections, for small group discussions, or to take action and get involved in the community.
Not in Our Town (NIOT) is a grassroots community organization that is working to build an inclusive, safe community. NIOT tends to issues of racism, discrimination toward members of the LGBTQ community, bullying in schools, and other ways human beings are excluded or oppressed. Click here for more information.
