Planning & Evaluation
We plan and evaluate ministry at our monthly meetings and also during our annual church wide ministry planning process. 

Teaching and Training
Throughout the year, we sponsor films, conferences and classes related to justice and mercy issues.

We promote a variety of service opportunities throughout the year.  Please visit the official Facebook page for Justice and Mercy Ministries.  The purpose of this page is to better communicate Justice and Mercy upcoming and ongoing events as well as provide volunteer opportunities.


Justice & Mercy Ministries

“He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you?  To act justly, and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8

We act justly when we support right relationships with God, people and creation. We love mercy when we cultivate a lifestyle of kindness and compassion. We walk humbly when we value all people as God does.             
The justice and mercy ministry team’s purpose is to help our church family and our community live out God’s "justice and mercy” in a spirit of humility. We meet monthly to plan and evaluate opportunities for teaching, training, surveys and service.
