Anti-Racism Resources

These resources are intended to help us get started on our anti-racism journey. They come highly recommended by various church leaders and members throughout the church, but have not all been read by staff or elders. We believe it is good to be challenged, so please take some of the material to your small group for further discussion. As always, staff and elders are available for further processing. Our hope in providing this list is that we, the church, would be part of ushering in a brand new day that sees people of every color and background, stand equally side-by-side, as it will be one day in heaven. - Pastor Aaron

Leigh Ann

Just like many, my heart was broken this week. I am struggling to listen above the cacophony. I am choosing to hear with my heart instead of living in a meme driven Monday morning quarterbacking world. My perspective is not popular and am getting ‘quid pro quo’ push back. Your sermon, Aaron, was exactly what I believe but it seems I may lose friends over this stance.
