June 19, 2015 The Synod of the Northeast PCUSA Leadership and Mission Teams lift in prayer all those suffering in the aftermath of the murders of our African American brothers and sisters in Charleston, SC.
The Synod of the Northeast Mission and Ministry Commission meets next week. We vow to develop an action plan to continue the work we have begun with others in response to the racism, hatred and sanctioning of violence that gave rise to the act of terror that occurred in Charleston this week.

It is our actions rather than our words alone that will bring about God's will of justice and peace. In the meantime, we offer the following prayer. Please click here to read more.
