The Social Justice Team is a ministry focused on internal congregation education, conversation and relationship building as well as external opportunities for service and mission in the community.
The Social Justice Team meets on the last Wednesday of every month on the campus of Concord Trinity. Feel free to drop in or connect with our Ministerial Director of Discipleship and Missions, J.T. Young.
2023 Social Justice Series:
Education + Engagement
The CTUMC Social Justice Team is committed to both bringing awareness and understanding to people about complex social issues, as well as getting involved in local efforts to address the systemic problems plaguing our community.
In order to best do this work, we'll be focusing on four main areas of justice work in 2023 and addressing one topic each quarter:
Gun Violence Justice
(January - March)
(April - June)
(July - September)
(October - December)
For each justice issue, we will be 1) inviting into the church an expert speaker to kick off our focus for that quarter, 2) hosting a 4-6 week study group to dive deep into that issue, and 3) getting involved with a local organization to help with the hands-on work of justice in our community.
Stay tuned for further details about our speakers, studies, and service opportunities!
