Social Justice Ministry

Charlotte Congregational Church has a Social Justice Ministry which strives to deepen and promote the Christian values of peace, justice, community, and reverence for creation by identifying social and environmental issues, stimulating study, dialogue and prayer, and inviting action.

Anyone who is interested in what we do or has ideas for our focus is welcome. Call Carol for more information at 651-8977.

We invite you to join us on any of our initiatives at any time and at any level of involvement. This could be as simple as contacting a local legislator by phone, email or a letter on topic that speaks/calls to you.
