Help make a difference by putting your Faith in Action
Faith in Action Suggestion for the Month of December:
We are called to pray, AND we are called to put our faith into action. We are called to follow Jesus which means we need to love and serve our neighbors in the name of Christ. It’s also our job to stand up to injustice and respect the dignity of every human being.
Ask Congress to support immigrant Farm Workers - The agriculture industry relies heavily on immigrant workers, many of whom are undocumented. These hard-working individuals can be found in every corner of the country, harvesting crops, working the fields, and doing intense work up and down the agricultural supply chain. These workers lack vital protections, despite performing essential services, and Congressional action is needed to support the workers as well as a vital sector of the U.S. economy.

Help serve the world in the name of Christ...
