Vigil_6We are committed to acting powerfully in the public arena in order to transform our congregations and our community. We believe that individually and together our congregations have a right and responsibility to act for the common good. We believe that the greatest gift we can give to the community are congregations transformed by faith in action in our care for the community around us. Member congregations put their faith into action by identifying and working on issues on three different levels:

Beginning in their neighborhoods, then expanding efforts to their larger community, culminating into overall issues along with MCU for the metropolitan area. MCU activates congregation members to work on community concerns in the following ways:

  • We listen to the needs of the community and our congregations.
  • We prepare for action by studying the issues most important to our communities.
  • We act powerfully in the public arena to make our community safer, stronger, and better educated
