Join our Network and Speak Out for a Faithful Budget
The NCC Poverty Initiative's role in raising the awareness and will of Christians to act to reduce poverty is more crucial than ever. Please consider how God might be calling you and your church to join together with the NCC in the work to end poverty. May our voices grow louder and stronger as we amplify God's call for justice and righteousness.
PC(USA) Gun Violence Policy
This report, approved by the 219th General Assembly (2010), challenges our society’s fatalism and numbness in accepting the highest gun death rates in the world, reviews past church positions and proposes a new “spiritual awakening” approach: a church-related, community-based strategy inspired by “Heeding God’s Call” in Philadelphia, with similar groups in Richmond, Virginia and central New Jersey. The report looks at our culture of violence-acceptance, with its undercurrents of fear and desperation.
