The final word is love. We cannot love God unless we love each other, and to love we must know each other. We know him in the breaking of bread, and we are not alone any more. Heaven is a banquet and life is a banquet, too, even with a crust, where there is companionship. ~ Dorothy Day
The Gospel is incarnational, and so we are called to actively give alongside others—working in the community to offer mercy and make systemic changes for the common good. Our guests, friends, and members serve our community and world in varied and different ways as we are called and moved.
Our Social Justice team focuses on three primary social concerns:
- aiding the hungry and homeless
- promoting peacemaking
- striving for justice with and for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities.
Here are some of the area organizations we support:
We host several Twelve Step groups under our roof.
Our Session has voted to support the New Sanctuary Movement, and our congregation is dedicated to becoming increasingly educated on the complex issue of immigration. We desire to live as a congregation that remembers that we, too, have been strangers, and are called to welcome those seeking refuge.
We seek to be faithful to Christ’s ministry to, “bring Good News to the poor . . . to proclaim release to the captives, and receiving of sight to the blind; to set at liberty those who are oppressed; and to proclaim the year of the Jubilee” (Luke 4:18-19).
