Bishops condemn violence at U.S. Capitol


In response to the January 6 violence at the U.S. Capitol, Bishop LaTrelle Easterling shared a statement that brings hope and inspires action. She said, “As a church, as Christians, we must condemn all the forces that led to the unprecedented insurrection today – forces of hate, of white supremacy, of distorted self-interest, and abuse of power.”

January Book Study Groups:

Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You: A Remix of the National Book Award-Winning Stamped From the Beginning


We will embark on an all-ages, all-congregation book club in January, reading “Stamped: Racism, Anti-racism, and You,” by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi. Renee Watson says, “In Stamped, Reynolds gives context to where we are, how we got here, and reminds young people-and all of us-that we have a choice to make about who we want to be. This unapologetic telling of the history of racism in our nation is refreshingly simple and deeply profound.”


We’ll also host several all-ages study groups. Everyone – youth to elders – members and friends – is encouraged to join! We have several book groups planned. To learn more, and to register, click here.
