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.
