"...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

Our Faith calls us to follow the example of Jesus Christ by acting for social change to promote justice for all God's people. See full Calling Statement.

We act according to Biblical imperatives as we understand them, address issues supported by Presbyterian Church USA and support the priorities of the WGPC Mission Commission.

Our current priorities are:

  • Poverty with an emphasis of Food and Housing Security
  • Education Reform
  • Gun Violence Prevention
