We focus our mission and social justice in these three areas.
Jamaa Letu Orphanage in the Congo- This is an orphanage that our United Methodist Conference partners with to provide support- in prayer, finances, and labor. We sponsor 11 children each year, and we have committed to providing college tuition and living expenses for one University student. We take a "Noisy Offering" in Advent where we collect as much cash as possible to fulfill our goal, and then we find ways to invite the community to contribute as well. Take a look at their website: www.pnwumc.org/hfca/
Dismantling Racism- in 2021, our focus is Dismantling Racism. In classes and small groups, we are reading books, sharing resources for understanding white privilege, prejudice, and systemic racism. Preaching and leadership will regularly look at ways to help eradicate our own practices while seeking to learn and grow so we might actively work as anti-racist people.
