The Disciples 20/20 Vision and Reconciliation
The Christian Church of Northern California-Nevada recognizes that God calls us to embrace the diversity of the world around us! Likewise, we recognize that in the course of our church's history, we have fallen short of that call, and that the sin of racism and other forms of oppression keep us from being in full relationship with our God. For that reason, the CCNC-N has embraced the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)'s 2020 Vision to become an anti-racist, anti-oppressive, pro-reconciling church by the year 2020! Below is information on the ways we're striving to achieve this dream of God's realm on earth.
