Race Relations

We resource Christian Reformed members and congregations as you dismantle the causes and effects of racism within the body of believers and throughout the world.
We help you to live as God’s diverse and unified family.

“To be in Christ is to be reconciled with one another as a community of racially and ethnically diverse people of God.”
(God’s Diverse and Unified Family, CRC Synod 1992)

Although this workshop is not about how to dismantle racism, it will provide enough information about the history of racism to help participants begin or continue their journey towards dismantling racism.
