Funding for Social Justice

Brown Envelope Collections: Our major fundraising vehicle is our “brown envelope” collection each Sunday morning during worship services. Each month a social justice organization or charity is chosen to support. During a Sunday service a presentation is made about the organization and its work. During the month, members and friends can contribute to the organization by placing a donation in a “brown envelope” during the collection.

Shopping for Justice: We encourage everyone in our church community to purchase supermarket gift cards at church. These are used for full face value at the supermarket while the supermarket gives us 5% profit. This 5% goes entirely to relieve hunger and homelessness. So when you shop we invite you to “shop for justice” by using these gift cards and also by buying goods that we will deliver to the local food pantry.

Fair Trade Sales: We sell Equal Exchange items: coffee, tea, chocolates and other goods. This supports the Equal Exchange fair trade network around the world, and all profits we make go directly into funding our social justice programs.
