Resources on Race, Racism, and Reconciliaton
We’re living in a cultural moment where we either stand up for the truth and love of God or we remain silent and complicit to the sin and hate around us. The sin of racism has plagued our country and culture for nearly 400 years despite God having much to say about it. Vintage Church and every other church is at a pivotal moment, a moment of decision and will. Join Vintage as we hear from God and discover what he has to say about racism and how the church should respond to the sin of racism.
