Centennial for Racial Justice is hosting Monday night Q&A sessions to discuss the Racial Reconciling Covenant

Join us on Monday nights, starting April 26, 7-7:30 for Zoom Q&A sessions to discuss the Racial Reconciling Covenant.  This is a time and space that is available for anyone to drop in with questions or concerns and stay as long or as little as you wish.  All questions are welcome!

Urgent Needs for our Brooklyn Center Neighbors:

Resources are increasingly slim in the Brooklyn Center and surround areas due to the unrest following the police killing of Daunte Wright.  The Centennial Racial Justice Team and the Church and Society and Mission Committees are collecting donations and establishing a drop site for food and supplies to be delivered to our neighbors in Brooklyn Center. Brooklyn UMC’s Food Pantry will be distributing the items to individuals.  Funds are also being collected by BUMC to support Black and Brown-owned businesses that have experienced destruction.  

List of Needs:

Food items: African food staples from African markets, fruit, veggies, milk, juice and formula

* If you have perishable items, there will be a refrigerator at the drop-off site.

Supplies: diapers, wipes, cleaning supplies

Dollars:  Cash, placed in an envelope and marked with the name of the donor and the words, “Brooklyn Center” may be dropped off at CUMC Roseville Campus for quick dispersal.  Check donations may be sent or delivered to CUMC.  Checks should be made out to CUMC with “Brooklyn Center” entered on the memo line. You can also give directly to the food pantry at Brooklyn United Methodist Church by going to their drop-down menu at https://www.simplechurchgiving.net/app/giving/broo7200139

Drop-offs at Centennial Roseville Campus can be made at the front east entry between the hours of 8—5 Monday through Thursday, and 8—3 Fridays.  Contact Karensa Fischer 651-270-3738 to arrange drop-offs outside of those hours or to arrange a pick-up from your location, or if you have questions.

Changing needs will be found on Centennial’s facebook pages and website.

 

 

At Centennial, we believe that God’s Kingdom is a kingdom of justice, unity and strength, and that all people are made in the image of God. To love Christ is to be actively opposing all forms of racism (explicit, implicit, systemic and individual) in pursuit of reparation, reconciliation and meaningful justice. (See Article V Racial Justice of of The United Methodist Book of Discipline)

The Centennial for Racial Justice team was formed to call our entire congregation into action to illuminate and dismantle racism within the culture of our church community and the communities in which we live. (See Centennial for Racial Justice Call to Action)

 

Our congregation is in discernment about joining the Racial Reconciliation Movement, with the guidance of a coach from the Commission on Religion and Race (CORR) of Minnesota United Methodist Church.  Centennial for Racial Justice is proposing the adoption of a Racial Reconciling Covenant in 2021which will commit our congregation to identifying goals for our racial justice work, and establish an ongoing plan for accountability and re-evaluation of those goals in years to come.  

We encourage all of our members to become familiar with this Covenant document, as it will be discussed in upcoming events and conversations.  Our congregation will have the opportunity to vote on committing to this Covenant at the upcoming All Church Conference in June, 2021.  Centennial for Racial Justice welcomes feedback and conversation around this document.  

We acknowledge that these conversations might be uncomfortable for some or all of us.  The most meaningful growth and healing is usually uncomfortable.  We hope to approach these conversations with humility and Christ-like love for all of God’s people.  No single person or group has all the answers to how to dismantle racism.  We will make mistakes.  We will learn to name them.  We will learn together.

 

The United Methodist Church defines racism in our Social Principles

“Racism is the combination of the power to dominate by one race over other races and a value system that assumes that the dominant race is innately superior to the others. Racism includes both personal and institutional racism. Personal racism is manifested through the individual expressions, attitudes, and/or behaviors that accept the assumptions of a racist value system and that maintain the benefits of this system. Institutional racism is the established social pattern that supports implicitly or explicitly the racist value system. Racism, manifested as sin, plagues and hinders our relationship with Christ, inasmuch as it is antithetical to the gospel itself….”
