“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of Mine, you did for Me.’” Jesus, Matthew 25:40

Privilege is when I think something is not a problem because it isn’t a problem for me.

We at Lighthouse Fellowship UMC are determined to believe and love until the world knows Jesus. We recognize and repent of our own personal, national, and religious racial biases and for the ways in which we have participated in and acquiesced to white supremacy. We continue to learn and inform ourselves as to the depth and breadth of the problem. We stand with Jesus and our diverse community in communion, lament, prayer, love, and joy as we join together with those working to create a more just and equitable society founded on God’s sacrificial love for all people.
