Change is hard. Creating effective social justice habits, particularly those dealing with issues of power, privilege, supremacy and leadership is like any lifestyle change. Sometimes the hardest part is just getting started. The good news is, there is an abundance of resources just waiting to empower you to be a more effective player in the quest for equity and justice.

Starting this Saturday, August 1, 2020,you are invited to join the 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge©, created by Dr. Eddie Moore, a diversity educator. This will be a starting point for individuals to advance deeper understandings of the intersections of race, power, privilege, supremacy and oppression. more
Please join us on Monday evenings beginning on August 3 at 7 p.m. via Zoom to join with others for a time of prayer and renewal. Come whenever you would like. Email Pastor Shirley for the signup link. We will share prayer concerns that we bring to this meeting. Also, we will name those who have been on the Prayer List during the Sunday Morning Worship Service. Learn more
