Community Outreach

Ecology Task Force

Our ecology task force works to help our church and community move toward more sustainable pathways by organizing electronic recycling and eliminating the use of paper goods from church functions.

Social Justice Task Force

Over the course of the past few years our social justice task force has morphed into an Open and Affirming (O & A) work group. The O & A work group is facilitating our church's discernment process as we consider joining the ranks of O & A churches.
