Social Justice Ministries Council
The Social Justice Ministries Council (SJMC) is a committee designed to address the social justice issues that concern our congregants and to help foster a “culture of social justice” in our church community. The council will comprise of representatives from our justice ministries, individual congregants, our minister, and a board liaison.
The Council will:
- Amplify the work of our existing justice ministries in our congregation;
- Address the relationship between social justice and the tenets of our UU faith;
- Create space in our congregation to address social justice issues as a community (this could be through sermons, coffee hour discussions, workshops, evening meetings, etc.);
- Help the congregation connect their social justice work with activist organizations outside the church and the social justice work of the UUA;
- Help support social justice work in the broader community (the support could be through donations, volunteering, etc.).
We are planning to alternate 3rd Thursday meeting dates with 2nd Sunday meeting dates, in an attempt to accommodate many people’s schedules. We usually meet in Rev. Jill’s office. All are Welcome! For more information, please contact Steve Farough at firstname.lastname@example.org
