Resources for Racial Justice

The fierce, uncompromising love of Jesus is evident in many of the conversations he had that are recorded in the gospel accounts. Jesus spent time answering the questions of the curious and the skeptical, drawing them into deeper understanding through questions of his own. He loved people enough to challenge them to reassess their assumptions and examine their motives. He was not afraid to rebuke their unloving ways. Let us pray that we will also be characterized by fierce love—that we will lay aside our cowardice, our willingness to please, and the prioritization of our own well-being to engage in loving, challenging conversations. Let us pray for humility; a readiness to hear and learn from those who think differently to us; and faith in God’s ability to change any heart, including our own.
[Jesus said] “I’ve told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.” (John 16:33, The Message)

Resources During This Difficult Time
We are working together as a community to support one another through this difficult time. Let’s all look out for those we know are struggling financially, and share our resources as we are able. Our church leadership is reassigning some of our existing funds for the same purpose. We have also established a designated fund to provide financial support to Cedar Ridge community members facing particular hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. You can give to this fund at the button above. [Read more]
Cedar Ridge Community Church is a diverse, open, and affirming community of followers of Jesus, sharing God’s love with everyone and working to make the world a better place for all. We invite you to join us on our journey of growing to be more loving people who recognize that change must begin with us.
