Get Involved


Ecumenical partners often find working together on issues of peace and justice most effective and rewarding. You may be involved in ecumenical ministries if you:

  • Participate in community ministries with other denominations
  • Worship with local churches from other denominations
  • Work together with others on issues of peace and justice
  • Collaborate with people of other faith communion at your local Presbyteries, college campus or adhoc committees

Christian Unity Gathering - organized by the National Council of Churches (NCC), the Christian Gathering is an annual event providing opportunities for Christians to come together to promote social justice and civil rights.
