Latest Sermon

Read or Watch our Latest Sermon

Communities of faith and people across the nation are joining the movement to confront the sins of racism and white supremacy, protesting the unlawful and unjust killings of innocent Black individuals and demanding that Black lives of every age, gender, gender identity and sexuality are no longer ignored, dismissed or pushed to the margins of our society.
