Meet PC(USA) Co-moderators at Virtual Meeting on Race and the Church
On February 1 at 6:00 p.m., the co-moderators of the Presbyterian Church (USA) General Assembly will visit Presbytery of the James virtually for a conversation on race and the Church. As the elected leaders of the denomination, Ruling Elder Elona Street-Stewart and Teaching Elder Gregory Bentley are on the front lines calling the Church to repentance and reconciliation over racial divides.

Join the discussion to learn concrete steps to begin to bridge these divides. Westminster Church (Richmond) and the Black Caucus and the Dismantling Racism ministries of Presbytery of the James host the event.
