First Presbyterian Church believes we are called to participate in God’s good design for the flourishing of all His image-bearers by working towards racial justice and reconciliation. We believe that reconciliation will come as we take the time to lament the sin of racism, educate ourselves, and mobilize to bring Jesus’ love and healing to our world as the Holy Spirit guides us. May we be a church that denounces all forms of hatred and racism and seeks to “act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God.” (Micah 6:8)
