Statement on Race

Our faith teaches us that each person is created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27). We at Peace Church, United Church of Christ affirm God’s creation and believe all people bear God’s image and likeness with equal status. We believe God desires all people be treated with dignity and respect, to live free, and move about the earth without borders, walls, and threats of separation and annihilation. We live out the love of God justly by proudly and publicly saying #BlackLivesMatter and stand committed to:

Proclaiming God’s extravagant welcome.

Embodying the radical love of Jesus.

Worshiping together to celebrate God’s love and sharing that love in the world.

Acting on our faith by answering the call to action to dismantle racism.

No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.
