Committed to Justice

We affirm every person as a unique individual made in God’s image.

Faith Action Network is a multi-faith, non-profit organization that brings together powerful voices of faith and conscience to advocate for a more just, peaceful, and sustainable world. Spirit of Peace UCC is proud to be one of over 160 advocating faith communities. We regularly participate in FAN’s cluster gatherings, educational events, and invite the congregation to participate in advocacy throughout the legislative session and beyond.

We pause and acknowledge the systemic racism which was a key factor behind the death of George Floyd and countless others who have been unjustly killed because of their skin color. We stand against all hate and institutionalized racism. We commit to learning from the past and seeking out the perspectives of those who are currently oppressed so that we can better understand their needs and work together to bring about real change. We commit to taking action individually and collectively as a church to eradicate racism and other forms of oppression. We long for the world we can build together with humility, servanthood, the power of prayer and above all love.
