Bootstraps is the name of our racial reconciliation ministry and it is taken from a quote by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, who once said, “I believe we ought to do all we can and seek to lift ourselves by our own boot straps, but it’s a cruel jest to say to a bootless man that he ought to lift himself by his own bootstraps.”
Our Bootstraps mission, which was unanimously adopted by our elders, is to increase racial awareness, understanding, and empathy within our congregation by developing racial healing pathways for our church. One pathway involves inviting our members to engage in a group dialogue called Be the Bridge. Scroll down for more information and to register for the group.
