Social Action Commission
The Social Action Commission ministers to those who are in spiritual,
emotional, or physical need. Through works of charity, the group reaches out to
the homeless, the poor, the hungry, the lonely, the imprisoned, the neglected,
and the sick. It is our mission to respect life at all stages and to work toward
eliminating the causes of social problems both locally and globally.
