Racial Justice Team
The Racial Justice is under the umbrella of Manchester UMC’s Social Justice Ministry. As a church, we recognize racism as a sin, affirm the worth of all persons and assert the obligation of society to address long-standing, systemic issues around race.
If you are passionate about changing perspectives, systems, and institutions so that individual persons can flourish, join our Racial Justice Team! Our work starts here, but extends beyond our walls to make our world a better place. To get involved, please contact Social Justice Coordinator, Nicki Reinhardt-Swierk [email protected].

Harvard Implicit Bias Test
All of us carry some form of bias and prejudice. Many of our biases are implicit—we don’t even know that we have them. This psychological study measures unconsciousness biases along several different social and cultural lines.
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.
