Church Mission & Social Justice

 

The Church Mission Social Justice committee strives to be representatives of Christ by helping with the needs of people locally and worldwide, and by raising awareness and collecting supplies and funds as needed. 

This has included supporting the local food bank, collecting school supplies distributed in our school district, participating in a fund raiser for a new dining hall and kitchen for the local homeless shelter, supporting Oasis Teen Center, Friendship House, Tacoma Community House, and a Christmas family. We helped to coordinate an educational experience concerning immigrants.

We also occasionally sponsor special offerings for natural disaster relief, both in our own country and internationally via our denomination’s relief network United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR).

As a committee, we don’t meet regularly, but if you would like to participate, please contact the church office for ideas about how you might want to pitch in.
