We’re Stronger Together. Join Us!

Dear Friend,

We are not alone in these challenging times.

“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

Moses spoke these encouraging words as he prepared Joshua to lead God’s people Israel (Deut. 31:8). In some ways like Joshua and the Israelites, we as a church and as individuals are living through a tremendous time of transition. We need to take the words of Moses to heart. And we need to depend on one another for encouragement and support. Can our ministry rely on you as we seek to follow the Lord through this time together?

You can be an encouragement to this ministry and a blessing to others by investing a year-end gift that will extend this ministry even further in the coming year.

There’s no doubt the past two years have been hard . . . but they have also been enlightening.

Here at the Office of Race Relations we’ve witnessed the resilience of congregations as they battle isolation and depression in their midst, the dedication and determination of exhausted pastors, and the creativity of leaders committed to Christ and community.

In response to the pandemic and the rising outcry of those seeing and experiencing racialized inequality, we’ve connected with more people and provided more resources that help dismantle the causes and effects of racism within the body of believers and throughout the world. These online resources include educational webinars, virtual sharing spaces, talking circles, and digital workshops. And we have also given out more multi racial scholarships this past year to advance more diversity within ministry leadership.

As a body of believers, we are in this together, and we are confident that our Lord goes before us and will never leave us. Please give a year-end gift that will help extend this ministry even further in the coming year. Any single amount will be a blessing. However, by choosing to make your donation a monthly recurring gift, you will strengthen this ministry for years to come.

Thank you.
