June 10 is Office of Social Justice Offering Sunday. The Christian Reformed Office of Social Justice (OSJ) works to develop a deeper understanding of and response to God’s call to let justice flow like a river in both our personal and communal lives, as well as in the structures of our societies. In addition to Ministry Share support, it is the yearly offerings from CRC churches across the U.S. and Canada that make the work of OSJ possible.
People across the Christian Reformed Church are engaging in important justice work on issues such as immigration, refugees, sanctity of human life, Indigenous justice, religious persecution, creation care, and more! For example, Oakland CRC in Hamilton, Michigan recently welcomed a refugee family of 10 from the Democratic Republic of Congo. In this year’s OSJ Offering Sunday bulletin insert, you’ll read how Oakland CRC learned to trust God more deeply through welcoming this family—and how they became the answer to the prayers of Christians half a world away! OSJ is a denominational resource that is available to help your church engage in important work like advocacy with refugees.
