Letter Writing Ministry

June Letter Writing Meeting

In 2018 SPR began a new ministry around Letter Writing after the 2018 summer mission trip by the youth group and the call to action by the young folks of SPR during their 2018 Youth Sunday. We meet once a month (first Sunday of the month; 12:30-1:30p) to write letters of resistance to our elected and/or church officials and letters of encouragement to those affected by bad systems and policies. Each month will have a different justice theme.
