Renewing Our Mission at First Congregational Church of Webster Groves

  • Alliance for Interracial Dignity  is a group of leaders in the Webster Groves area with the goal of building a strong community by learning from our collective past and challenging the racial status quo.
  • Racial Justice STL is an online directory for racial justice events and organizations in the St. Louis area. It is managed by a small group of St. Louis area United Church of Christ members and pastors. As part of their efforts to engage churches in dialogue and action towards racial justice, they felt a website listing area events and groups dedicated to racial justice would be helpful to the community. It is their hope that becomes a widely used resource by the many who have been recommitted to ending centuries of racial injustice. For those of us at First Church it is a way to know what is happening in the area that relates to our Renewal 2017 efforts. Check it out!
