Social Justice and Advocacy

God’s Work. Our Hands.

"The witness of this church in society flows from its identify as a community that lives from and for the Gospel."

 “Faith is active in love; love calls for justice in the relationships and structures of society. It is in grateful response to God’s grace in Jesus Christ that this church carries out its responsibility for the well-being of society and the environment.” (The Church in Society: A Lutheran Perspective, 1991)
