We’re so glad you’re here! We are a Matthew 25 church, which means we are committed to dismantling structural racism. This is complex and crucial peacemaking work, and we invite you to engage!

The Committee on Anti-Racism & Equity (CARE) strives to provide opportunities for members of our congregation and wider community to learn and grow in their understanding of anti-racism; establish and grow deeper partnerships that foster racial reconciliation with accountability to people of color, and communicate about this work both within our congregation and in the wider world.
