Mission and Social Justice

Mission and Social Justice

The purpose of the Mission and Social Justice Committee is to recommend programs to our Church that follow the words of Jesus found in the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 25: 34-41, “For when I was hungry, you gave me food; when thirsty, you gave me drink; when I was a stranger you took me into your home, when naked you clothed me; when I was ill you came to my help, when in prison you visited. . . . I tell you this: anything you did for one of my brothers here, however humble, you did for me.”
