Social Justice Sunday resources

This year Grace & Groundings, Ohio Conference’s racial reconciliation resource team, is inviting all Ohio Conference churches to set aside Sunday, June 23, as Social Justice Sunday. This spring the Grace & Groundings Team will be sharing resource materials for observing Social Justice Sunday in your congregation.

2023 Social Justice Sunday

The theme for the 2023 Social Justice Sunday was race as it relates to freedom. The Grace & Groundings team prepared worship planning resources to help guide congregations’ planning.
