A spiritual community for all: advancing justice and embracing diversity with love and acceptance
Social Justice

Short-Term Social Justice Projects

Community Involvement helps make church members aware of current social problems, promotes and organizes community projects, and demonstrates that active interest can make a difference.

Our Social Justice Ministries help us to get involved in our community. When we see the need for change, when we want to help, we find ways to act and build relationships with individuals and organizations. Our short-term Social Justice projects run throughout the year and involve various community organizations.
