Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ!
I Was Hungry and you Fed Me
This verse from Matthew 25:35 is the basis for our congregation’s commitment to helping alleviate hunger. October 16 is World Food Day and the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) has designated the week of October 11-18 as a Food Week of Action. Our congregation’s Mission and Advocacy Task Group has prioritized hunger as our mission focus for October. Go to our Feeding the Hungry page for resources to learn about and contribute to ending hunger.
“While recognizing that racism victimizes many different racial-ethnic groups, we acknowledge its unique impact on the African American community. Given the particular forms that anti-Black racism has taken in the United States of America both historically (including slavery and Jim Crow) and today (including mass incarceration, disproportionate policing, economic inequality, and continuing acts of racially oriented violence and hate), we state clearly: GOD LOVES BLACKNESS. Too many have denied this basic truth for too long. Our choice to align ourselves with love and not hate requires both a rejection of racism and a positive proclamation that God delights in Black lives.”
