The purpose of our Mercy and Justice team is to present opportunities to the people of Christ Church to join in God's mission. This means following Jesus' commands to share the gospel, to show love, to serve, and to be good neighbors to those in need in our communities.
There are two days in January that are significant for the cause of mercy & justice in our nation. First, Sunday, January 17 is Sanctity of Life Sunday. Every year, on the Sunday before the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we mark the day to remember that all lives, including the unborn are precious and worth protecting.
Second, Monday, January 18 is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Both of these days remind us that all people are created in the image of God, and therefore precious and worthy of love and respect.
