Our next congregational meeting is scheduled for Sunday April 23rd. After a very brief meeting, we will move into the Jubilee group discussions mentioned above, as this is an important focus for our church for the coming months.
Called to Justice will be regularly updated with invitations to participate in events, answer calls for donations or volunteers, and to participate in collective action.

Ainsworth is a justice-loving church. We believe we are called by our faith to love our neighbors and to seek equality, welcome, justice, and community for all. Our tradition calls us to put our faith in action, and to respond to injustice through action and reflection, through protest as well as prayer.
