Fighting for What is Right
Activism at RUMC
"We are called to step in and carry one another's pack--not to step on or step over. It is the burden we are all called to carry."
Senior Pastor, Dr. Tom Davis
The power of Christ gives us eyes to see the systems oppressing our neighbors, and the strength to take action. RUMC & Chapel Roswell are committed to doing the work to help end racism in our community and beyond. If you would like to serve alongside us but are unsure of how to state, we hope you'll find the resources here helpful.
When you know better, you do better.
