Eastside Ministries was created to bring dignity to our sisters and brothers who, because of systematic, institutionalized, and permitted, corrupt and racist systems, policies, and mindsets, are victims of systems that create lack, degradation, poverty and dehumanization.
To this end, Eastside MInistries condemns racism and classism, and all manifestations of inequality in the world, the United States, Texas, and East Ft. Worth.
The murder of George Floyd was heinous and evil. We pray for his family and friends, that they may find the comfort they so desperately need.
Eastside Ministries will continue to aspire to be a beacon of hope to all who have a need. Furthermore, we will institute policies and procedures that affirm the worth and self-esteem of all.
We thank our Partner churches for their support, prayers, and donations of time, money, and personnel in the unified goal of serving our neighbors.
We are still in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak, so we continue to urge our Board to be safe and always consider your well-being and that of your families. Do not feel pressured to attend any meetings or gatherings that make you uncomfortable about your safety.
Finally, let us, in one accord, do all we can to bear one another’s burdens and be a change agent in this city to attain equity for all.
You are a blessing to your Churches, and a blessing to Eastside Ministries.
