Social Action is defined as people working together, acting for the benefit of others and for society to create positive change. Social Action addresses such concerns as:

  • Instituting fairer policies to eliminate discrimination
  • Backing a slate of candidates for public office
  • Attending as a group, public meetings at which an issue of interest to the community is being discussed
  • Addressing voting rights needs and assuring that communities are informed about changes
  • Improving health outcome and well being

The Social Action Committee of Third Street, a new ministry, has come out strong - and is creating a "Strong Agenda for Positive Change." If you're interested in lending your gifts and talents to the pursuit of social advancement come stand shoulder to shoulder with this ministry as they endeavor to bring about effective and lasting change within the community.

Behind every good man, is a good woman. Well, how about a team of women? This ministry strives to support the pastor of the church through small acts of love and appreciation from the congregation throughout the year. Their main event of the year commences at the end of the conference year, where the women will organize a special appreciation ceremony in honor of the pastor.
