Peace with Justice
The Peace with Justice Covenant Congregation Program aims to make shalom — a word of greeting or farewell meaning peace — visible and active in people’s lives and communities. The General Conference assigned The General Board of Church & Society to put into service the program and called the denomination to “strengthen its capacity to act as a public advocate” in communities and nations throughout the world.
We encourage individuals and churches to become involved in ministries to inmates, former inmates and their families, so that the redemptive and reconciling love of Christ be known.
