Guiding Scriptural Foundation: Luke 4: 18-19
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
The Gathering has the following Social Justice Priorities:
Our desire in this ministry partnership is to uplift, to seek justice, and to form beloved community where all are welcome. Innovation in ministry enables us to expand the reach of God's embrace and bless those who have not yet found a place of belonging. We believe that we move closer to God's vision of Shalom by highlighting underrepresented voices and holding space for new communities of worship to form.
