SOCIAL JUSTICE TEAM
The Social Justice Team focuses on building relationships across the community for systems change, e.g., changes in transportation, education, immigration, sustainability, jobs, homelessness, affordable housing, and public policies which impact these and other areas of community life.
Made up of representatives from various church ministries, we help coordinate and expand our shared justice work throughout the community and to provide education and awareness within the congregation for our justice ministry. We believe this supports the mission of the church “to create and build Christian community by inviting, forming and sending faithful disciples of Jesus Christ.”
The Social Justice Team members represent our work with ISAIAH’s Great River Interfaith Partnership (GRIP), Promise Neighborhood, UMW, the Third Saturday Community Meal and special projects and education events such as interfaith work on climate change and human trafficking. Membership is open to any congregation member who wants to help provide leadership for our church’s social justice efforts.
