Racial Justice – What Are You Reading?
Please plan to stay on September 25 or check the display later of books others in our congregation are reading about the challenges of learning about and talking about race and racial justice. First Congregational Church supported the development of the Whatcom Racial Equity Committee as a first step in changing in our community. Join others to think about and talk about how we can be part of that difference.
