Justice and Peace

Justice and Peace

In keeping with the statements of General Synod XV and XVI regarding the justice and peace priority of our denomination, and in conjunction with our National United Church of Christ Justice and Peace Ministry, our congregation voted in 1987 to join the wider network of Just Peace Churches.

We committed ourselves to address the issues of economic justice, social justice and peace at all levels of Congregational life…and in the world.

The UCC Justice and Peace Ministry is a vehicle to integrate faith with action and heal brokenness with each other, in our congregation, in our immediate community, nationally and globally.

As part of the UCC Ministry our mandate is to: participate in creating a society with a vision of sharing and community; advocate for low income and marginalized people; advocate for children by providing food, shelter, health care and education; eradicate discrimination because of race, ethnicity, gender, disability, religion or sexual orientation; shape foreign policies which guarantee human rights and sustainable development; support the stewardship of our planet … the integrity of creation.

The Just Peace Committee always welcomes new members and participants in activities.  Call the church office at (626) 795-0696 or e-mail us for more information.
