Second Presbyterian Church is a participant in the Matthew 25 Initiative of the PC(USA). One of the goals of this initiative is to support racial justice by dismantling structural racism. We can do this is by fearlessly applying our faith to advocate and break down the systems, practices, and thinking that underlie discrimination, bias, prejudice, and oppression of people of color. The Wayfinders group is addressing this goal through reading and discussing current books related to social and racial injustice. Our mission is to reflect on our own biases, grow in our knowledge, and determine ways to take action as individuals and as a congregation in a manner supported by the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Wayfinders is a small group that examines why and how social justice is important in the church and in our faithful action. We hope to remove our blinders and expand our limited world view by reading and discussing contemporary and classic books related to racial justice. Our goal is to discover where we are going by learning where we have been. We focus especially on the call of Jesus to do justice and love kindness and attempt to build our perseverance and stamina to follow his way. We also share resources related to social action/advocacy and take field trips to learn about social justice action through churches, museums, films, speakers, and nonprofits.
All are welcome to join us in this important work! For more information or to join by Zoom, contact Janet Pfadt.
