NEXT Church Virtual Gathering to Address Racism

NEXT Church is a network of leaders and members across the PC(USA) who believe the church of the future will be more relational, more diverse, more collaborative, more hopeful and more agile. NEXT Church provides a hopeful space for robust conversations about the theology, culture, and the practice of ministry, supports strong, faithful leadership in a time of adaptive change, and encourages collaboration and creativity across congregations and geographies. They are fostering a conversation about how to follow Christ in our particular day and age and are seeking to strengthen the relational fabric of the PC(USA) so that congregations are strong and healthy enough to be a sustained, effective, faithful and moral voice that is engaged in the transformation of our communities toward the common good.

On March 5 – 7, NEXT Church is hosting a virtual national gathering called “Breaking, Blessing, Building: A Call for the Common Good,” which will focus on how we as the church can address racism both in our faith communities and in the world around us, so that we may better recognize the just world God intends for us to build for all this people.

The Peace and Justice committee invites the entire DPC congregation to attend. There is no cost to attend, but you must register to participate. For more information, visit contact Erin Rizk at
