The Multicultural Club encourages students to reject stereotypes by truly learning about and appreciating each other and, at the same time, contributing to our community as a whole. The club fosters cross-cultural conversations among students of various racial and ethnic backgrounds. Students may not have the opportunity to learn about each other’s culture and history over the course of a normal school day, but the Multicultural Club will provide a venue for these conversations to take place. As a result, the Multicultural Club will improve self-esteem by honoring and recognizing the uniqueness of every individual in God’s kingdom. We believe this understanding will help to foster and instill a true civic commitment in teenagers, based in grace.
Biblical Vision: The Multicultural Club’s biblical vision finds its genesis in Galatians 3:26-28, “So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” The students see this verse as a unifying call to be in community with one another through Christ.
Goal: The goal of the club is to provide an opportunity for students of all races and ethnicities to connect, grow in unity, and help our community learn about and celebrate one another.
Membership: In following the call of Galatians 3:26-28, and in line with the goals of the Multicultural Club, membership is open to all high school students who are interested in joining.
