Recognizing the importance of environmental stewardship as an integral part of social justice, we prioritize sustainable practices within our church and wider community. From energy conservation initiatives to promoting responsible waste management, we actively encourage environmentally friendly behaviors. Through education and advocacy, we aim to preserve the natural beauty of our planet for future generations.
3. Poverty Alleviation
We believe in the dignity of every individual and strive to combat poverty by addressing its root causes. Our committee engages in various poverty alleviation programs such as food drives, clothing donations, and financial assistance to those in need. Additionally, we support vocational training initiatives and job placement services, empowering individuals to uplift themselves and break the cycle of poverty.
