Our Justice Stances are one way our Congregation witnesses to our faith and our discipleship in Jesus.

Our stances guide intentional, prayerful preaching to raise awareness, focus ministry activities, and guide collaboration with other people and organizations.

Our stances are developed through a process of study, reflection, prayer, discussion and vote of our membership.
