Anti-Racism Task Force

The Bethel Anti-Racism Team

is a congregational effort to address matters of racial injustice and our call as the body of Christ to grow in understanding, build relationships, pray, and advocate for racial equity and a more inclusive church.

Bethel Anti-Racism Team Mission:

In accordance with the Bethel mission statement to “prepare our members for outreach and service”, the Bethel Anti-Racism Team will provide education on racism and white privilege in an effort to promote dialogue and compel members to act for social justice in order to “minister to human needs”.
