Social Justice Plate Offering


The Social Justice Plate Offering is this Sunday, June 21. Money collected will benefit Rochester School 7. Economic justice is strengthened through education. Our involvement in School 7 not only nurtures the spirits of those volunteering in this school , but also serves the community. School 7 is located in an economically challenged part of the City of Rochester. Well educated people know their rights and responsibilities as citizens. They are better equipped to demand and get equal treatment in the market place.

Rev. Celie will not have Java's office hours this week. To be continued in September!
