COS has embraced and led antiracism work for over 25 years.

CORE (Communities Organizing for Racial Equity) is a non-profit that has emerged out of this continued effort. CORE is a group of Christ followers who work to empower and equip organizations, congregations and communities to organize and disciple their members to become agents of institutional and individual racial justice leaders.

CORE has workshops planned for 2024.

One was just completed on January 25 and 26. The next one is a workshop on Zoom held on six Wednesday evenings from 6-9 pm. The dates are February 21, 28, March 6, 13, 20, and 27.  Another workshop is scheduled to be held at COS on April 11 (5:30-9 pm), 12 (8:30 am-6 pm) and 13 (8:30 am-5 pm).

It is the hope and prayer of our COS Antiracism team that all COS people enter and continue in this work of understanding what God-led antiracism looks like. Our times are always fraught with racial tension. As Christ followers, joining in the ongoing task of dismantling racism, we can do good work together.

Registration costs ($300) are covered by our COS budget. Prayerfully consider attending or coming back for a refresher ($150 for a returning attendee).
