SOCIAL JUSTICE

As we seek to emulate the life of Jesus, we are called not only to meet the emergent needs of those in crisis but also to address systemic oppression and marginalization in our world. We build the "kin-dom" of God by working to create a better world for all of God's children. We do this, not alone, but in partnership with other faith and civic communities to strengthen the scope and impact of our calling.

  • Global Climate Strike: September 20

    Perhaps you've heard of students around the world who have been going "on strike" from school every Friday to demand action on the climate crisis. Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg started it, and the school strikes have spread widely. Those youth have called for people of all ages to join them in a global climate strike on Friday, September 20 -- three days before a major UN climate summit meeting begins in New York City.


    Take part in the youth-led event on Friday, September 20 

    This is the big day of action, and crowds of people joining with the youth will send a powerful message to politicians and business leaders. The local event is from 11 AM-3 PM, starting at Union Station, ending at the State Capitol (If you're not able to do the march up the 16th Street mall, join the rally at the Capitol around 1:00) A team from the Kirk of adults, teens and children are planning to attend. If you are interested in going please contact Jackie Kendall-Gebel.
