Justice

 

 

... and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

 

You don’t have to be part of our church to help us help others!

Let us know if you’d like to help  socialministry@stpaulsteaneck.com

 

The Social Ministries Team provides opportunities to work together to bring God’s Justice to the world.  We feel called by God both to pray “Your Kingdom come” and to work for God’s Kingdom of Justice.  Our team emphasizes Economic Justice, including Fair Trade, Hunger, Homelessness, Health, Environment and Immigrant Detention working through charity, accompaniment and legislative advocacy ministries.
