Local Faith Communities
Updated: Dec 9, 2020
Throughout its history, DISC has engaged and cooperated with faith congregations in Pearl City, Lincoln Court, and beyond. For example, in April 2017, DISC members helped promote a Unity in the Community event, featuring a joint worship service shared by four historically black churches in the district. Pastors from the four churches led the service, which was held in historic Hughes Park under a large open-air tent and attracted a huge turnout from community residents. Following the worship service, the congregations shared a meal.
DISC also welcomes participation from congregations throughout Boca Raton. Local interfaith clergy have been invited to speak at the Martin Luther King celebration since its inception, and beginning in 2018, the Boca Raton Interfaith Clergy Association and the Boca Raton Interfaith Youth Association have made a presentation as part of the MLK event. In 2016 DISC partnered with the Universalist Unitarian Fellowship of Boca Raton, under the auspices of a Environmental Protection Agency grant, to offer “Rising Together,” a broad educational program about weather-related concerns (heat index, hurricanes, flooding, mosquitos, mold) to residents of approximately 100 households in Pearl City, Lincoln Court, and Dixie Manor.
