JUST PEACE SUNDAY

The United Church of Christ was the first Christian denomination to declare itself a "Just  Peace Church" in 1985. Over the past 35+ years, the concept of Just Peace has been  affirmed by ecumenical partners around the world. As our world suffers from conflicts  around the world, now is the time to seek alternatives to militarism and turn our focus to  building peace from the ground up. In 2022, Just Peace Sunday is Sept. 18, which the  United Nations recognizes as the “International Day of Prayer for Peace”.

WORK DAY

Our next work day is October 4, 2022. Bring your own snacks and drink. Take breaks on your own and we will leave as soon as everything is done and equipment cleaned and put away. Please see Calvin Motoda if you would like  to volunteer your time and help to maintain our beautiful church grounds.
