2016 Concern for People with Disabilities
It is good and pleasing to our Lord when we are a people who heed the call of mercy and justice (Micah 6:8).

It calls the church to be a formational community that counter-culturally embraces biblical stewardship and generosity as foundational to our life, faith, and witness.
