Advocacy and Justice

We believe church is more than a place to go for Sunday Service. We know putting our beliefs into action can create positive systemic change and transform the lives of others. Church is who we are as we represent God’s love in the world. Central to Jesus’ teachings is the Great Commandment: we must love God and love our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew 22:35-40, Mark 12:28-34).

The below groups and resources help us in loving both God and neighbor as we pursue justice, and advocate for the well-being of all people.
