While UMC politics makes headlines, local churches are making a difference.
The General Commission on Religion and Race is in connection with many local churches that have game changing relationships with their communities and asked the question: How can the expertise and experience happening in local churches be shared with the larger church? GCORR decided to hold space for local churches to help get the word out on what’s working on the ground.
GCORR’s Church to Community highlights congregations across the connection that are working with their neighbors to energize forgotten communities block by block. Each will have a space on the website featuring unique programs and key insights around building more just and equitable communities. GCORR will also host conversations through social media to build active engagement between churches that are growing into their neighborhoods, and and the people partnering who make revitalization possible.
GCORR equips churches to be relevant and to reach more people across lines of race, age and class. Church to Community lifts up lives that are being changed, bridges that are being built, and people who are finding more in common the more they come together.
