take action now!

We wrestle with the question, "How can we be known as a faith community that loves mercy, seeks justice, and walks humbly with God?"

Justice is at the core of our faith.  

In the 1960s, Journey of Faith got involved with the Civil Rights and anti-war movements.  

Recycling, reusing, reducing, repurposing became a thing and way for us during the 1970s.  

We've been advocating for gay rights since the 1980s.  

In the 1990s, we were one of the first churches who saw a gap in service for communities struggling with rising poverty, homelessness, hunger, and violence. 

We initiated efforts to partner with other faith communities to form new organizations (Interfaith Hospitality Network, ICPJ, Friends in Deed, the CROP Hunger Walk in Ann Arbor) to tackle those big problems "head on."

Recently, we joined the fight for marriage equality.

We continue to rediscover what biblical justice looks like for us today.  We think it's pass time again to stand up and take action to protect people from hate, violence and persecution.

If you want to do something now to help ... We've got a few ideas to get you started:
