Serve the World

“…We will endeavor to minister to all who suffer, looking for ways to enable peace and justice within the Church and in the world.”

Join the Justice and Peace Action Network!

Banner-YouAreTheLightThe Justice and Peace Action Network (JPANet) is the arm through Justice and Witness Ministries of the United Church of Christ, and it is our denomination’s grassroots advocacy network composed of individual members and local UCC congregations across the country.  The JPANet both educates and engages its members in shaping public policy in keeping with God’s vision of a just and loving society.

JPANet members collectively advocate issues for social change that promote the Common Good. The Global Concerns issue area is shared with staff of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), the UCC’s partner in global ministry.  This creates a powerful collective avenue to stay on top of critical issues and to act—through phone calls, letters, and emails to key decision-makers.  

Here’s how to join:  go to http://www.ucc.org/join_the_network and sign up today!  (Scroll down past the photos to find the sign-up form and information).

St. Vincent de Paul Donation Barrel in Fellowship Hall

There is a St. Vincent de Paul donation barrel for our use in donating clothing, shoes, accessories, books and other small-size donations that are so very important to their mission of assisting the poor. If you are clearing out those cupboards and closets, please consider depositing your donations in the St. Vincent de Paul donation barrel in Fellowship Hall.
