Mercy & Justice


‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Matthew 25:40


 

Learning About Mercy & Justice

We encourage each other to respond to God’s love by loving our neighbors, near and far. We strive to understand how each of us can help bring mercy, justice and hope to our brothers and sisters in a sinful and hurting world.

There are many opportunities to be involved in Mercy & Justice ministry: participate in projects, serve on the planning committee, donate needed goods, or learn more about living out our calling to be just and merciful.

Feeding the Hungry, Sheltering the Cold

We collect food for Blessings in a Backpack, to feed local low-income children, and the Hockanum Valley Tri-Town Pantry. We donate needed personal care items for the No-Freeze Shelter. We sponsor a team in Windham Area Interfaith Ministry’s (WAIM) November Walk for Warmth, to raise funds for fuel assistance, and lend a hand at their Willimantic center. We support the work of Living Water International  an international Christian organization serving people in extreme poverty by providing access to clean water. 

Individuals can join our church’s online team participating in Chain Store Reaction, urging companies to work towards a slavery-free supply-chain. We also contribute financially to organizations, such as International Justice Ministry, that fight human trafficking.  We have collected needed toiletries and other items to help Connecticut-born and international victims in our state.  And we encourage buying fair trade goods, including the coffee served after worship, to reduce exploitation.
