In Jesus we see a God who experiences anger at the evil in our world, who establishes justice and righteousness, and who works on behalf of the oppressed. We also see in Jesus a God who listens intently, grieves deeply, and weeps. As apprentices of Jesus, we aim to follow his example.

In a commitment to be a part of the solution, we have determined some actionable first steps for Crossroads to take.  We understand these actions are only a starting point, and our commitment must, and will be, ongoing.  We invite you to join us in the pursuit of racial justice. 

1.  PRAY

  • For Jesus to help you search your own heart and reveal needed transformations. 
  • For the healing and safety of people of color. 
  • For the church to preach ad live out the gospel in truth. 
  • For real change in our nation. 


3.  ACT

  • Join the Crossroads Open Conversation on Race
  • Watch Pastor Charles' Video
  • Spend time in an ethnically different setting than your own.  Consider eating at a restaurant, shopping at a store or visiting a park.
