Missions & Social Justice
Because God calls us to care about others:
Missions & Social Justice Team is offering education information about how our faith connects to various social concerns. Each month they will focus on a specific topic and each week will focus on a different faith lens to view that topic. This month is Peace with Justice.

What do the facts say?
Conflict theorist often use three terms: Peacekeeping, Peacemaking and Peacebuilding. Each of these has a time and place in the creation of a lasting peace for an area in conflict.
