Wear Black to BCMC on Sunday

Christian Churches Together (an ecumenical association of which our denomination, Mennonite Church USA, is a member) is calling Christians to wear black to church this Sunday, Dec. 14, as a symbol of solidarity with the message that “Black Lives Matter” and a witness for racial justice in our nation.

For more information see:



Sunday’s reading from Isaiah 61 states:  The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me; he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor…to comfort all who mourn.

In that spirit, let us join us in wearing black to BCMC this Sunday!
