Mission &


We grieve with our brothers and sisters for those who have died at the hands of 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 express your thoughts on our Facebook page or during our weekly prayer meeting on Zoom. Use the Contact form to get more information. We Walk for Justice and Peace on the first Friday each month.
