Social Justice

Educating, Listening, and Acting to Eliminate Injustice and Oppression

A main priority for our faith community is to make sure that we work towards justice in our community, state, nation and world. Our Social Justice Ministry aims to educate, listen, and act to eliminate injustice and oppression. We do this through providing resources and opportunities to learn, hosting events and discussions, sharing action tips for our congregation, and partnering with others who are already doing important work.

How the Word Is Passed
