Faith in Action is a coalition of 24 congregations that work together on local justice issues in the Harrisonburg-Rockingham community.
Faith in Action values reflecting and respecting the community's diversity, strengthening congregational and community networks, and connecting our faith traditions with local justice concerns.
Faith in Action's Covenant Congregations, of which CMC is one, spent several months reflecting on the needs in our community. Representatives from those congregations gathered on Monday, Oct. 7, and selected affordable housing as the area on which we will work together for the next 12-18 months.
What happens next?
The first step in ALL campaigns is to learn what's already happening in our
community through our civic leaders and other organizations AND look beyond
our area to see how other communities are responding to this important need.
How can you take part?
The Campaign Committee will meet on Monday, Oct. 14, at Community
Mennonite Church at 7 pm and will continue to do research for several weeks.
Members of Faith in Action Covenant Congregations are welcome to attend these
meetings and/or take part in the learning and research process.
Check with your congregational representatives Kent Sensenig, Aliese Gingerich,
and Ben Bailey for information.
