The DNA of our church has always been to engage in social justice as an important way we express our faith. We believe God intends a world of fierce love that overcomes oppression, barriers, and privilege; radical love in the face of divisiveness and fear; with abundance of love and grace. And we trust in the Creator’s abundant grace to sustain and guide us in our work.
The Seeds of Resistance Ministry Team oversees study and action in many areas of justice work for the congregation. They provide leadership and opportunities for the church in the transformational work of becoming a community of faithful action following the counter-cultural example of Jesus.
CPUC works in relationship with WSCO (West Side Community Organization) to help create a thriving, just urban neighborhood. We have for many years maintained an ongoing relationship with the local Mendota Mdewakanton Dakota Tribal Community. We have a longstanding commitment to both internal and external anti racist work, and participate and support FREC (The Facilitating Racial Equity Collaborative) and ASDIC (Anti Racism Dialog Study Circles). We support those who stand vigil at Fort Snelling Court to demand human rights of immigrants. Our welcome includes full inclusion of the LGBTQIA+ and Non-Binary community. We are committed to environmental and economic justice. We have a history of participating in public education. We prepare and serve hot meals through Loaves and Fishes. Every year, we share worship with Clark Grace United Church to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. And have a special service to celebrate the life of Oscar Romero. We are a progressive, spirited justice seeking community. Come join us to make a difference.
