Our Mission

We will, with God’s help, fulfill our baptismal vow of working for justices by advocating for God’s children and preserving God’s creation.

Justice Ministry challenges injustice and values diversity. We stand for policies that create opportunities to overcome poverty and hunger, promote peace and dignity and defend God’s creation. Justice Ministry takes Christ’s teachings outside the church walls and into our communities, state, nation and the world. We go to where people are, offer to walk with them and show them the love of Jesus Christ.

“And what does the Lord require of you but to do justice and to love kindness and walk humbly with your God.”
Micah 6:8.

Silence is an enemy of justice. There is no path to justice that is only comfortable and convenient. We will not create justice until we’re willing to position ourselves in uncomfortable places and bear witness.

Our Justice Ministry Round Table meets from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on the fourth Monday of each month, with a Christmas break in December. We offer a flexible format for networking and in-depth discussion on justice-related issues. Everyone has an equal right to participate. There is a place for you.
