Racism persists among members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the denomination is once again looking among its own to help instill "pro-reconciling" and "anti-racist" values in the church's ministries.

The church's Reconciliation Ministry is accepting grant proposals for 2013 that advance the denomination's anti-racism efforts.

Reconciliation Ministry, created in the wake of Martin Luther King's assassination in 1968, seeks to advance the church's internal "pro-reconciling/anti-racist" efforts.

Last year's grant recipients helped foster "cross cultural dialogue," helped promote "anti-racism values" in church-related organizations.
Grant applicants have until July 15 to apply for 2013 programs.

Eligible partcipants include local congregations. The grant requests are intended for general and institutional pro-reconciling/anti-racisim initiatives.

The application form says preference will be given to "cluster applications" which involve applications from multiple Regions working in partnership with one another on a discrete project.
