PeaceMakers is a subcommittee of Mission & Social Justice. It's a welcoming group of people involved in ways of working for peace and justice at all levels. We believe faithful peacemaking goes beyond promoting peace and non-violence and includes issues of human rights and dignity. We've organized educational programs on a wide range of topics for our church, plus events for the larger community, and some reading/discussion/discernment for our group. Ongoing, we cooperate with local organizations in programs and information sharing (such as Minnesota Alliance of Peacemakers, Every Church a Peace Church and the Joint Religious Legislative Coalition, as well as the UCC and Presbyterian denominations. We also plan some events with groups at Macalester College.
We typically meet on the fourth Tuesday of each month at Macalester Plymouth for conversation, eventplanning, occasional dessert potlucks, fellowship and more. All are welcome to visit or join us!

We believe in integrating active care of God’s world and creation into the spiritual life and social justice work of our congregation. The Caring for Creation Committee works to encourage the church as an institution and our congregation as its members to live in ways that sustain earth’s natural systems upon which all life depends. Activities throughout the year include helping all church members understand the connection between caring for creation and living justly.
