We are Becoming Anti-Racist

At St. Luke’s United Methodist Church, we are an open community of Christians helping people find and give hope through Jesus Christ - regardless of their gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, nationality, disability or socioeconomic background. In order to fulfill our mission we are dedicated to becoming an Anti-Racist church community. Be Brave. Be Bold. Be Anti-Racist with us.

Be brave. Be bold. Become anti-racist with us.

We're boldly committing to become Anti-Racist. And we're asking the people of Indianapolis to join us. Will you?

Becoming Anti-Racist is a journey, a life-long commitment to "do justice". We are not all starting from the same place or life experiences and that is okay. We are simply asking you to lean in and open yourself up to learning. We're sharing resources and encouragement, hosting trainings and events and taking action to help each of us become Anti-Racist. We want to impact our community and bring about change. All proceeds from merchandise sales will benefit the Minority Business Incubator. Will you partner with us? To commit to this effort, join the email list and follow us on social media. We'll make sure you know about all the ways we can partner together for this movement. Create bold change with us.

MINORITY BUSINESS INCUBATOR

MINORITY BUSINESS INCUBATOR

Minority-owned businesses are one of the backbones of the nation’s economy. Over the last 10 years, these businesses have created over 4.7 million jobs. Currently, there are more than 4 million minority-owned businesses in the United States, with sales that total nearly $700 million. Despite their growing importance, minority businesses face many obstacles, particularly when it comes to business financing. Minority businesses are much less likely to get loans than non-minority business owners, especially for ventures with less than $500,000 in gross receipts. And the ones that minority small businesses get from lenders tend to be half of what their counterparts receive.  

This year, St. Luke's is hosting our first-ever Neighborhood Business Incubator event, for which entrepreneurs are invited to present their ventures, focused on inclusive entrepreneurship. As a part of the incubator, these entrepreneurs receive a variety of resources and benefits to help level the playing field, ranging from access to training opportunities as well as business loans and more! Join us for this event on Saturday, July 31 at 9:30AM where you can learn more about these entrepreneurs and have the opportunity to support their business ventures! Help St.Luke’s put our money where our mission is and give or volunteer for our minority business incubator.
