The Racial Reconciliation Initiative of Floris UMC and Restoration Church

After the tragic events in Charlottesville, Virginia on August 13, 2017, Floris UMC held a prayer service of racial reconciliation.

During the service, Rev. Tom Berlin shared he hoped the evening was “just the beginning of a larger movement.”

Inspired by the challenge, Anna Ruth (Lopynski) Kendall, a member of Floris UMC, worked in consultation with Rev. Berlin to draft and submit proposals for grants to facilitate growth and learning around this important conversation in the Floris UMC community. Three different United Methodist agencies responded with a total of $7500 in grants to begin this work.

“I strongly believe that your strategic approach could become a model for other ministries in mentoring and strengthening churches in a broader region to become more engaged in missional ministry and connection in their community.” – Stephen B. Kendall, Virginia United Methodist Foundation

We welcome you wherever you are in your journey.
Some of those in our faith community are wondering why we are facilitating these sacred conversations. Others are ready to lead an activity of racial reconciliation. Many are somewhere in the middle.

We are hosting and facilitating participation in studies, community events, speaker engagements, and other learning experiences. We hope you will join us in the journey of reconciliation.
