The United Methodist Church of Preston Hollow constructed a temporary memorial for Black individuals killed due to racism or racially motivated attacks. The memorial features both deceased activists and victims of police brutality.

The church has also been vocal about their support of the Black Lives Matter movement. After the death of George Floyd, The United Methodist Church of Preston Hollow posted statements to their social media accounts. They have emphasized how Jesus says to “love our neighbors as we love ourselves.”

We are at a tipping point friends, we can each decide will we resist change and see our society crumble, or will we embrace changes that will benefit and serve everyone? When we care about the treatment others receive in our system, we also are supporting our own welfare. Do we remember the greatest two commandments Jesus cited? Love God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength. The second one, Jesus says is to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. . Our welfare is inextricably tied to the welfare of our neighbor. If we are going to survive, if we are going to thrive, it means we are all going to safeguard each other’s present and future. . . . . #umc #dallas #prestonhollow #prestonhollowumc #lovenoexceptions #service #community #worship #jesus #church #unitedmethodistchurch #blacklivesmatter
