Peace & Justice Committees

Fair Trade Committee

The Fair Trade Committee will host Fair Trade sales during each Donut Sunday to walk in solidarity with vendors and artists with whom we are committed to building long-term relationships. As part of our commitment to becoming a Fair Trade Congregation, we are committed to using Fair Trade products, advocating for social justice, educating ourselves and others, and promoting environmental justice. Annually, we hold a Fair Trade Festival, hosting vendors selling coffee, food, clothing, and other items made by artisans who earn a fair wage for their work. Email Ashley Markiewicz at amarkiewicz@churchofthegesu.org for more information.

Respect Life Committee

Members participate in spiritual, educational, and service activities to promote the sanctity and value of all human life from conception through natural death. Meetings are held the third Monday of the month. Email Debbie Bruening at debbruening1@gmail.com for more information.
