IN ADVOCATING FOR PEACE AND JUSTICE

Member advocates of BCUCC review public policy issues, with a goal of taking stands informed by Christian teaching. Advocates exchange information, and from time to time, invite other members of BCUCC and their friends to support a position. BCUCC does not endorse or support any candidates, but instead focuses on policy issues that affect our community.

WE BELIEVE…

IN GREEN JUSTICE

We support Citizens Climate Lobby (CCL), a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change. We particularly place emphasis on writing letters to local newspapers.

THAT “FAITH WITHOUT WORKS, IS DEAD” [JAMES 2:14-26]

Our members, from young to young-at-heart, have partnered and participated in community and global projects like the annual Brea Country Fair and Inner Coastal Clean-up, the OC AIDS Walk, and the Heifer Project. We also partner with other inter-faith organizations like the Active Christians Today (ACT) group, Mercy House, and the Voice of the Refugees. Church projects and programs include our very own California native green garden, recycling, and green living workshops.

WE BELIEVE…

IN SOCIAL JUSTICE

Jesus was a social radical who believed in embracing the outcasts, taking care of the sick and the weak, and providing for the poor. Jesus’ mission lives on in at BCUCC, where for over 25 years we have cared and housed shelter guests as part of an interfaith shelter network (currently led by Mercy House) to house individuals who find themselves temporarily homeless and in need of a helping hand. We have also collected over 10 tons of non-perishable food over the past 6 years through our First Food Sunday. We have also opened our space to host several independently run Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.
