Black Lives Matter

is a Theological Statement

Racism corrupts all aspects of society in the USA. It is the product of sin, power, and privilege, embedded in systems of oppression. As a multi-cultural congregation, we are committed to dismantle racist structures in the church and support efforts to create a more just society.

Welcoming Migrants

We recognize that the theme of migration between nations is complex, transcending the pastoral and diaconal work that we do in the churches. Regardless, we are called to reflect profoundly, ethically, morally, spiritually, and pastorally, seeking alternative responses to the great needs of this sector.

We recognize the intense efforts that others have made in this area and the accomplishments that they have achieved in the arenas of organization and the respect for the urgency of the situation. However, much more is required in order to overcome the serious problems experienced by migrants before, during and after they reach their destinations. Our roles need to include orientation, accompaniment, education and the demand for holistic justice.

We are sure that the problem of migrations has its roots in the lack of real opportunities in the areas of employment, education, security and recreation that are aggravated by the poverty, misery and marginalization that characterizes the migrants' country of origin and that require them to immigrate to the United States and other countries seeking the "American Dream," too often at the cost of their own lives and their families, and saddest of all, without the certainty that they will achieve their goal.

For this reason, we have come together in El Salvador under the theme: "Because the earth is God's creation, no one in any part of the world is illegal."

-From the Concordat for Companion Synods, drafted November 2012 in San Salvador, El Salvador.

Commitment to our Sisters and Brothers in Christ

All Peoples is a welcoming congregation striving toward the goals of the 2012 concordat. We pledge to welcome migrants into our community with love and appreciation. We will work through accompaniment to help migrants thrive in their new community.

Honoring those in recovery

We celebrate Holy Communion at all three of our Sunday services. We always serve grape juice to honor those in recovery.

On the last Sunday of October, Reformation Day, we celebrate the gift of recovery with Recovery Sunday worship services.
