Mission & Social Justice Committee

Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow's cause.  — Isaiah 1:17

The Missions Committee makes visible to the congregation the worldwide interconnectedness of the body of Christ. We believe that God calls us to love and care for our neighbors near and far, and to share our abundance with them. The Committee disperses a yearly budget to national and international bodies of the UCC and educates the congregation about the work of these bodies. We also share our resources with various local nonprofit organizations and ministries. We encourage individuals to participate in supporting these partnerships with both funds and volunteer involvement.
