File National Food Day
October 24, 2014
It's time to eat real! Join this nationwide campaign for delicious, healthy, and affordable food produced in a sustainable way. Thousands of events will be taking place around the country, designed to inspire Americans to eat healthy foods and repair our broken food system. This message is especially relevant for UCC congregations in light of the General Synod 28 Resolution for Mindful and Faithful Eating. In it, General Synod notes that "Our dietary choices can have profound implications for the environment, human well-being, and animal welfare." It goes on to call on all Christians to "explore and discuss how food choices can accord with Christian values and beliefs."
File Faith Perspective on Pentagon Spending
October 29, 2014
Our country’s excessive Pentagon spending both starves other vital programs and contributes to the militarization of our foreign and domestic policy. Join the Faith Community on October 29 for a webinar about U.S. Pentagon Spending. Listen to experts from several national faith advocacy organizations speak about just how big the US Pentagon budget is and what we can do to create more balanced federal spending priorities. Register to participate.
File Stoking the Fires of Justice: A Revival for Social Change
November 8, 2014
Justice & Witness Ministries with the Central Pacific & Pacific Northwest UCC Conferences invite you to a time of inspiring worship, preaching, and training to fan the flames of justice in the Northwest. We seek hearts aglow with the fire of the Holy Spirit. We come together to pray and proclaim, to sing and rejoice, to receive an abundance of grace in our lives, our ministries and our churches. Like the disciples after Pentecost, we gather to be re-inspired to be Christ’s Church in the world. Join us!
File Speak Out Sunday
November 23, 2014
We’re calling all congregations to dedicate November 23rd as Speak Out Sunday – a day for dialogue, teaching, prayer and action around sexual and gender based violence (SGBV) and its prevention. This date coincides with the United Nations “International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women” and the Center for Women’s Global Leadership’s 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence. Speak Out Sunday is the faith community’s way of uniting with and amplifying these global efforts.
File The National Gun Violence Prevention Sabbath
December 11, 2014
The National Gun Violence Prevention Sabbath weekend has been a cornerstone in the national conversation about gun violence and, specifically, what people of faith can do in their own communities to prevent it. This year, we're hoping to strengthen our reach while also bolstering the efforts of a key partner, Newtown Action. 
The National Gun Violence Prevention Sabbath weekend has traditionally been observed in March, but is being rescheduled to complement Newtown Action's National Vigil for Gun Violence Victims, December 11-14. Pledge your congregation’s participation now.
