Multicultural Ministry

Beyond Words Movement Strategic Intent

To dismantle structural injustice and systemic racism in America

Peter Watts, the new coordinator for the RCA’s African American Black Council, encourages participation from RCA churches in a national, ecumenical event on Thurs., March 25, called “Beyond Words,” to develop partnerships between white and black churches.

Watch a video invitation about the Beyond Words project by its founder and Peter’s colleague, Rev. Alvin C. Bibbs at the URL below.



While our churches will need time to consider the program and identify partners, this is a great time to learn how we can become active participants in racial justice. Personally, I signed up to learn more.
