WHAT IS THE RRJM?

Here at LCPC, we believe the Bible and our Christian faith call us to take a stand against the evils of racism and for equality and justice for all humankind.  This ministry addresses anti-racism in the context of specific questions for our time and place - as Christians in a majority white, affluent community, how is Jesus calling us and our church today to address racial reconciliation in our local community?

We consider these questions through education, discussion, prayer and discernment, with our ultimate goal of individual and collective concrete action.

Resources

As we seek to educate ourselves, we are seeking to listen to and learn from the experiences of our brothers and sisters of color so that we are best equipped to understand and respond with positive action. Below are some of the voices that we have been learning from:
