Mission and Justice
“What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” – Micah 6:8
Here at Park Avenue Congregational Church (PACC) we try to care for – and about – our neighbors, both locally and globally. It may mean bringing a meal to someone in the midst of a rough time, donating food for (or time to) the Arlington Food Pantry, participating in Project Bread’s Walk for Hunger, going on a mission trip to New Orleans after the devastation of Katrina or providing gift cards, prayer shawls, books and other supplies for folks in the New Orleans area in need, making health kits for Haiti, or writing an inmate in prison. These are some of the hands-on activities members at PACC have been, or are currently, involved with.
Events and/or Volunteer Opportunities in the larger community . If you know of events we might list, please let us know. We will be adding more as time goes by, so please check back.
Part of Mission and Justice’s responsibility is to make contributions to support a wide variety of programs at the local, national, and international level.
Our Donations at Work, if you wish to see more information about where our donations have gone… or programs that are near to our heart.
Restorative Justice is gaining support as an alternative to the current judicial system, and is a concept that the Mission & Justice Ministry is interested in. Briefly, the concept is seeing “crime” as a “HARM” that needs to be addressed by the victim, the community, and the perpetrator.
