The ministry of Compassion, Peace and Justice encompasses many different aspects of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Whether addressing issues around the rights of farmworkers, responding to a natural disaster or helping communities help themselves, our ultimate goal is to bring people together to reach those in need and share God’s wonderful love.
Our church participates in both the One Great Hour of Sharing and in the Peacemaking offering of the Presbyterian Church (USA) in support of the ministries of the larger church which individual churches cannot offer on their own. Additionally we have a food pantry and provided the entrée meals bimonthly for the ecumenical feeding ministry at St. Anne’s in Brentwood. Additionally, our Matthew 25 Deacons ministry reaches out with compassion to the needs within and outside of our faith community. Love is an action verb that requires good stewardship of our time, talents, and treasures.
When asked what was the greatest commandment Jesus responded – “’You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ Matthew 22: 37-39
