Social Justice Committee
Matthew 25 inspires the congregation to engage in service and social justice ministries. To strengthen the congregation’s involvement in service and social justice ministries. Provide opportunities for members to express their faith by responding to the needs of others. Work with other congregations or faith-based organizations to implement programs that serve the needs of others, while deepening the faith and life experience of the volunteers.
