Social Justice

Congregational Member of NAACP Boulder County

Continuing to move toward being a church that is a open and affirming to all, Heart of Longmont Church Council made the decision to join the Boulder County NAACP as a congregational member.

By doing so we have joined with other congregations from different religious faiths in Boulder county to increase diversity and cultural competency as well as strengthen the interfaith community through education and united action.

As part of that community we will abide by the following covenant:

We, as congregational affiliates of the Religious Action Committee of the NAACP Boulder County, agree that faith traditions have a responsibility to speak and take action against racism, social injustice, and the misuse of religion to justify the oppression of others. We also believe that all human beings have a place at the table, regardless of race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, socio-economic status, gender expression, sexual orientation or marital status.

If you have any questions regarding our membership, please reach out to Reverend Claire or Rod Edmonds.

“Jesus knew that the old eye-for-eye philosophy would have everyone blind. He did not seek to overcome evil with evil. He overcame evil with good. Although crucified by hate, he responded with aggressive love.” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
