Our Peace & Justice Action Team (PJAT) addresses local, state, national, and global issues relevant to our shared passions and Unitarian Universalist principles. Getting involved can be life changing! You can contact our teams directly and follow our Facebook page for details about specific timely actions. We meet the second Sunday of each month after the worship service. But you don’t need to be a church member to participate. We welcome everyone with a passion for service.
