Oakton Peace and Justice Fellowship – August 23rd

OPJF meeting is planned for Wednesday, August 23, at 6:00 pm in the church fellowship hall. ​We’ll have a casual potluck dinner followed by ​a screening of “Another Way of Living: The Story of Reston, VA.” This award-winning film, produced by Rebekah Wingert-Jabi, details how, during a time of racial and cultural unrest, the founders of Reston created a truly diverse community. Please let us know if you’re bringing the kids – we will try to set up child care.

Our efforts are grounded in our conviction that peacemaking requires creating a more just society, and our commitment to build and leverage relational power to affect social change. Join us to discuss how we can be a witness to Christ’s love in the world through actions and advocacy. RSVP and find more on Facebook.

Missions

Oakton Church of the Brethren strives to listen to our congregation and community, identify what is important, and take action. Take a look and see where you feel called to reach out with the love that Jesus Christ taught us. Bring that passion to the next Action / Reflection Committee meeting and we’ll serve on that mission together. Or, if you don’t see the mission you already have a passion for, bring that to the next Action / Reflection Committee meeting and we’ll work with you to learn about and support your advocacy.
