Justice or Just Us: The Biblical Call to Confront Racism

Online via Zoom, Led by Laura Echols-Richter
In-Person at Grace Chapel, Led by Stanley Wang, Kim Eiffert & Courtney Schultz

Confronting racism is not just a social or political matter, but a theological one. It is the Bible that calls us to pursue justice, and the Bible that calls us to oppose racism. This two-week class will be guided by videos based on a sermon series and the anti-racism commitment at St. Luke UMC in Indianapolis, followed by opportunities for discussion.

Unaccompanied Minor Migrants
Volunteer & Assistance Needs
Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas is being used as a “decompression center” housing unaccompanied minors who have journeyed across the U.S.-Mexico border from Central America. Prayer and advocacy are needed to create a better future for our neighbors fleeing from and those remaining in violence, climate disaster zones and poverty in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.
Easter Offering 2021
Easter is the celebration of resurrection and new life. I believe this has never been more important than in 2021. Coming out of an entire year of uncertainty with the pandemic, we long for the new hope and possibilities that Easter brings.
In 2020 Grace Avenue pushed back against darkness, doubt and death with faith and generosity. Although our building was shuttered most of the year, our church never closed. We continued to live into our mission of “Eradicating homelessness in whatever form it presents itself.” With creativity and passion, we found ways to offer people a spiritual, emotional and physical home.
On-Going Covid Precautions
8:30am & 8:00pm
We celebrate with joy the news that more and more people are now receiving a vaccine for COVID-19. We also continue to be in consultation with local medical experts, Grace Avenue leadership, and the office of the Bishop of the United Methodist Church in the North Texas Conference. We are seeking to follow the current guidelines to stay in the spirit of the first Methodist General Rule to “Do No Harm”.
