Social Justice Council
The Social Justice Council is an umbrella group that meets on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 7 pm to coordinate the Fellowship’s Signature Project, promote the agenda/activities of the Fellowship’s Social Action and Study Action Groups, organize new and seasonal social action responses by our community, consider social service requests for funding, and conduct quarterly allocations of 50% of our Sunday collection monies on behalf of the Fellowship to local and other charities.
All Fellowship members are invited to become members at large within the Social Justice Council. There are organizational volunteer roles for multiple seasonal and ongoing social justice activities involving the entire congregation. If you have administrative, marketing, creative, financial talents we can put them to great use alongside the leaders and team members of the Social Action Groups. Any member is welcome to suggest a non-profit program to receive financial support from the Fellowship by presenting it to the Social Justice Council for quarterly donation allocation meetings.
Green Earth Ministry
Meets the fourth Wednesday of each month at the Fellowship at 6:30 pm.
This committee seeks to encourage earth-friendly practices within the Fellowship, within the lives of Fellowship members and friends, and in the larger communities to which we belong. Goals include raising awareness of environmental issues and injustices; encouraging community and government action; generating commitment to sustainable lifestyle choices; and building a connection between spiritual practice and environmental consciousness. All are welcome to participate in our activities and meetings.
