Care from our church community extends from our neighborhood to the rest of the world.
Church and Society
Our Church & Society team (C&S) coordinates our social justice and mission actions. Throughout the year, we raise funds or initiate drives to collect items to support various community groups such as The Elizabeth Gregory Home, University Churches Emergency Funds, The Atlantic Street Center, Wesley Club, the Islamic Center of Eastside, Lutheran Community Services and others. We also coordinate activities in advocacy, speaking up for those most vulnerable, writing emails, calling legislators, or marching in the street. For information, contact Judy LeBlanc firstname.lastname@example.org or Virginia Erickson email@example.com
To expand our ability to address social justice issues, University Temple belongs to and partners with groups working on social justice issues.
