No One Stands Alone
Responding to Racial Injustice
"Dear Christ Church,
We are a kingdom people. Our vision is Christ and every tribe, tongue, and nation, the breadth of God’s creation before the throne in worship. This is the promise of Pentecost.
I am sure you have heard of the tragic death of George Floyd and the protests around the country. This reminds us that while we have been focused on the crisis of the pandemic, there are other longstanding fractures, injustices, and forms of suffering within our communities."

Christ Church Service of Prayer & Lament
Sunday, June 7th we devoted our time of worship to calling out to our Father to bring about justice in our country. We lamented the injustices against the Black community and other minority communities in recent days. We rebuked those who hold up systems and acts of oppression. And we ask forgiveness for where we have participated in and been blind to the dehumanizing of people in our country.
