The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the Southwest! CCSW is 391 congregations across all of New Mexico, Texas, the panhandle of Oklahoma and one congregation in Liberal, Kansas, seeking to serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in the incredible mission fields where God has placed us. We are part of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), an American-born mainline church organization that places its core value in belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. We live that out by celebrating together regularly around the Lord's Table to share bread and cup - welcoming all to share with us

 

A call for disciples in this time of violence

Posted on July 8, 2016 at 1:50 pm by Sharon Watkins

 

 

PRAYERS 

Please continue in prayer for all the tragedies occurring around our country. After having a meaningful conversation with our sisters and brothers at the Texas Christian Missionary Fellowship Annual Assembly in Arlington, Texas, about the need for honest dialogue about race, I heard the heartbreaking news of the shootings in Dallas tonight. Larry Ross, North Texas Area Minister, and I will be with TCMF in the morning to share our grief and to simply have conversation. Prayers especially for our sisters and brothers, including youth and children, that are meeting here in the Metroplex, and for helpful, healing conversation and hopefully steps we can take together into the future as one church. Peace.

Resources for Conversations around Race and Systemic Injustice

11/26/2014 Emotions are raw in the wake of the Ferguson grand jury decision involving the death of Michael Brown. People feel unheard, threatened and confused.

As we seek to be a movement for wholeness in a broken and fragmented world, our call is to open our churches as places of dialogue and action. Our challenge is to open our hearts to a difficult conversation around race and systemic injustice.

To assist your congregation in this conversation, resources have been assembled. Click here for additional links to resources and statements from Reconciliation Ministries, National Convocation, our General Minister and President, the National Council of Churches, Churches Uniting in Christ, and others.
