Learn how Peace Church puts our faith into action in following the way of Jesus.
To do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with your God.

The Peace Church community has a vital commitment to working for justice. Our justice teams work together collaborating our efforts as the Acting for Justice Hub – the hub of a wheel that is moving into the world and acting for justice. Click here to learn more about our Acting for Justice Hub.
The following efforts represent the spokes of the wheel that are tied into the core of our values as a Christian community as well connecting us to efforts in healing and repairing God’s world.

The Food, Energy and Environment Team focuses on the ways that we as a congregation can contribute to dealing with climate change by reducing our own carbon emissions and supporting broader efforts to care for God’s creation.
Peace United Church of Christ has developed a number of partnerships with other faith communities around the globe including in the Philippines and East Timor. This team focuses on maintaining these partnerships as well as helping the congregation appreciate the value of these relationships in our life as a faith community.

Sanctuary Congregation Team
In April, the Coordinating Council authorized a Sanctuary Exploration Team to consider the possibility of Peace declaring itself a Sanctuary Church. Peace church members have been investigating and imagining what this could mean, both for the congregation and the community. A presentation will be made at the Annual meeting on June 4 and opportunities for learning more, asking questions and discussing the issue further will be available during the early part of the summer.
