Every year the Social Justice Team sponsors collections for social justice issues that are in alignment with our annual focus on climate activism, gun violence prevention, racial justice, and refugee response/immigrant rights. Organizations are chosen by the Social Justice Team with congregational input. Appeals are made for three consecutive Sundays when everything donated in the plate is given to the designated organization. You are welcome to donate to these special appeals anytime during the three-week appeal. Your donation is tax-deductible and very much appreciated. Thank you for helping us heal the world.
