Social Justice Ministry

In 2015, the UCC encouraged congregations to join in “Conversations on Race.”  In response, members of this congregation organized a workshop led by Rev. Cheryl Harris “The Difference that Difference Makes”, presented speakers and panels at two Martin Luther King Brunches, Bob Miner continued the book club that Rev. Adams initiated, and Bob Slack held a discussion group on what is race. This has been done through the efforts of an informal group of about 10 people who contribute their time and talents when they can.  We have no formal meeting schedule but get together to put together events, and to discuss ideas. We have held multiple peace vigils, both day long and evening events.  We discuss peace at home, peace in our community, and world peace. We have held 4 Martin Luther King Jr. Brunches and are always interested in people’s thoughts for the next one. If you would like to help, let us know.  Or if something other than social justice issues excite you, think about how you can inspire another ministry.  Andrew Jennings would be happy to talk to you about how this ministry developed.
