The Social Concerns/Peacemaking Committee is a combined committee that implements the directive of the Social Justice Committee of the Presbytery and points to the reality of God’s peacemaking while focusing on family peacemaking as well. The committee advocates, educates, and creatively enacts methods that compassionately reach out to meet the complex needs of people, both within the church and in the community such as civil rights, human rights and anti-racism issues.
It sponsors the semi-annual health fair that caters to families and individuals. The committee also schedules short seminars on various topics of health. The committee has sponsored seminars on anti-human trafficking and has done toiletry drives. Other activities supporting the community and church members include anti-bullying, anti-gun violence and domestic violence. Anti-racism includes supporting Black Lives Matter issues also. The committee also financially supports areas of natural disasters.
