He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you But to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?  -- Micah 6:8

 

Guided by Micah 6:8, our Mission and Evangelism committee seeks to do justice through advocacy and education;

demonstrate kindness by being present in times of need with a welcoming spirit; and walk humbly with our God by organizing ways for our congregation to contribute to the church's work through out the world.
