Anti-Racism

Our faith in Jesus Christ leads us to address racism as a theological issue not a political one by actively addressing structures, policies, ideas, and practices that create inequities because of the color of one’s skin.

We will work individually and as a congregation to actively eliminate racism in ourselves, our church, our community, and the world around us.

This sub-committee’s initial work will be to develop a process for the FPC Session, other committees, and interested individuals to use to lead our church toward becoming anti-racist. The members of the committee will also provide support as we move through this work.
