Presbyterian response to racial equity protests

As a Matthew 25 church, we have committed to dismantling racism and promoting racial equity. This time in our nation is an important context in which to live the love of God. 

 

EVENTS

30-Day Journey: We seek to foster a world grounded in the Christian values of love, acceptance, inclusion, and equity for all people.  The Racial Equity Task Force invites you to humbly and prayerfully join in a 30-day journey to understand and address issues of power, privilege, and systemic racism.

 

Summer Storytime: Let’s Read and Talk about Race Together: Join Donna Chase each Wednesday for a children’s book collected from the International Civil Rights Center & Museum here in Greensboro. The books are for all ages and are best read and listened to as a family in hopes of sparking age-appropriate conversation about race. Donna also offers resources for parents. 

One City/One Film: The Greensboro Chamber and the Greensboro Public Library are encouraging residents to watch the movie (or read the book) The Hate U Give. Community discussions will be held on Zoom on July 21, 22, 23. 

In August, the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship is sponsoring a Virtual Book Club on How to be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi.
