COVID-19 RESPONSE

COVID-19 Response

This past year has altered the world in previously unimaginable ways, and the most intense impacts were suffered by those marginalized by poverty. As long-term ministers of presence in our communities, we were positioned to respond in unique ways. Thanks to your generosity towards the COVID-19 Community Support Fund, we were able to form contextualized, emergent practices for hopeful action amid crisis.
