Race Relationships @ FPC

First Presbyterian Church of Salisbury, NC created a Race Task Force, comprised of church members and community leaders in early 2020.

Mission:         

The mission of the Race Task Force (RTF) is to demonstrate the love and grace of Christ by promoting anti-racism at First Presbyterian Church (FPC) in Salisbury, NC. 

 

The RTF will strive to fulfill this mission by:

·      Exploring the biblical and theological foundations of anti-racism through the study of scripture’s story and themes.

·      Providing regular engagement opportunities in a safe space that are open to all FPC members

·      Serving as the primary clearinghouse for all race-related and reconciliation programs and events at FPC, including:

        +   Supporting individuals and groups within FPC as they seek to incorporate anti-racism themes into programming and events

        +   Publicizing such programming and events within FPC, and if applicable, in the community

        +   Assisting individual and groups with curriculum and other resources as needed

·      Acting as FPC’s central location for the collection, organization, and distribution of educational materials, resources, and other documents related to the mission of the RTF

·      Providing updates to the Session, making recommendations [as needed] to the Session, and requesting formal Session approval for activities that fall under the mission of the RTF at FPC

·      Discernment of the presence of the Holy Spirit through personal and communal prayer. 

 

 

Goals: 

The RTF has identified three overarching, primary goals:

1.     To support anti-racism educational programming and curricula at FPC

2.     To organize special events to promote anti-racism and community-building at FPC and within the local community

3.     To encourage acts of biblical reconciliation from within FPC
