Justice Ministries

UCC First Congregational Justice Ministries has formed six justice Teams. We are committed to each team's justice concerns and identify resources related to each team's focus. We have 30 congregational members involved with one or more of the five justice priorities identified by the congregation: Mental Health, Creation Justice, Poverty, DEI/LGBTQ, and Community Building.
Every couple of months, we will host a Justice Sunday. On Justice
Sunday, we will, have a justice-focused presentation and provide
time for the multiple justice groups to meet. We will have 5-6
Justice Sundays per year.
I want to highlight these are NOT standing committees with elected
members but rather open tables around which congregational

members gather to lead our congregation into deeper discipleship

and impact. Come sit with us.
