We grieve with our brothers and sisters for those who have died at the hands of systemic racism. At this time of such conflict and confrontation, we are reminded that Christ has given us the ministry of reconciliation. As we labor to end racial and social injustice, we invite you to our First Friday Walks for Justice and Peace (see below), or to express your thoughts on Facebook  or during our weekly prayer meeting on Zoom. Use the Contact form to get more information.

First Friday Walks for Justice and Peace

Our next walk is scheduled for Friday, May 7.

Before setting off on our Walk for Justice and Peace on June 19, 2020 (see slide show below), Senator Chris Coons admonished us to "walk, and keep walking." And so First & Central, and the Episcopal Church of Saints Andrew and Matthew, invite you to walk with us on the first Friday of each month. The walks will begin with remarks at First & Central (Market Street) at 5:30 p.m., rain or shine, and then make the 5-block walk to SsAM at 7th and Shipley. You may park at either church location. Masks and social distancing are required.

We walk silently as a time for prayer and reflection, concluding with a spoken prayer. You may carry signs in keeping with the spirit of Justice, Peace, and Reconciliation.

"First Friday" walks will continue in February, weather permitting. For any questions, email Bill Getman.
