I have done searches on churches in the area....I used to live there.

I did find one congregation...it is methodist.

St James UMC on Webb Bridge in Alpharetta.

I feel there may be at least a couple of others...try a search online using African american churches in Alpharetta or Roswell. My search was confined to United methodist.

If you don't mind a very large church, I strongly recommend NorthPoint Community Church. It is on NorthPoint Pkwy between Old Milton Pkwy and Kimball Bridge.

I wouldn't call it a white church, all races are there, but it would be primarily white in attendance.

Thanks. I was actually joking. I think it's funny and very Christian of us to look for churches based on Race. Very funny.

Do Muslim's look for white muslim mosques? Ha. Still the most segregated hour in this Land of God and Country. What would Jesus do? Better yet, What would Jesus say?

You are obviously not black.

That doesn't mean the OP can't comment.

It is interesting how many double standards exist in life (e.g., boys are often praised by their peers for sleeping around, while girls are often vilified for the exact same actions), and some of those double standards revolve around racial prejudice.

Segregation is a two-way street, and a double-edged sword. Some onus should (IMO) be put on minority groups to step forward and join majority society on their own. It isn't just the responsibility of the "white man" to help everyone else integrate. They need to take some responsibility.

Some do. The Somali community in the Twin Cities, for example, is moving quickly already.

I'm not convinced, however, that segregated churches help the situation much w.r.t. to racial relations in this county.

My two cents, at any rate...

This has got to be the funniest response I have ever received on city data. I AM BLACK!!!! CERTIFIED 100% down to my brown skin. So why is it that I'm obviously - in your opinion - not black. I merely made a point about the most segregated hour. Praise the Lord. I'm also a Christian. Will Jesus be coming for the Black or White Church?

Lord...it doesnt matter...one just wants to be comfortable in their worship. Should one take offense over which denomination you chose? Just like a traditional service over a contemporary praise service....Certain churches have different ways in which they worship...I dont really think color is an issue.

Darn right...the OP is making a perfectly reasonable inquiry. If you have nothing constructive to say, stay off the thread. It's that simple.
