Justice

  • We've received basic language about the Environmental Priorities Coalition (EPC) bills, copied below. Your Mission & Justice Board will pass along detailed info and factsheets once they receive them from partners. The ones marked with an asterisk are the policies that Earth Ministry/WAIPL is considering as our top priorities and that First Congregational Church will support as well.


  • The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Human Rights Conference will create spaces for the community to share our stories and renew our commitment to the ideals that Dr. King held dear and believed deeply.  


  • We are called as a Just Peace church to stand with and advocate for all who experience injustice and violence: the sick, poor, elderly, homeless, neglected, exploited, marginalized, and discouraged. The Mission and Justice Board wants to thank all those who have served this past year even in the midst of a pandemic. You met our common call by sharing your time, talents, and funds.


  • A big thank you to all who have contributed to Gardenview Tiny Home Village. Your generosity is helping to improve the day to day lives of the residents there. Below is a wish list for those who would like to support this new community as they transition toward permanent housing.
