>> Add this event to your Google Calendar

Are you concerned about the escalating issue of gun violence in our country? Do you long to make a meaningful difference but want to connect with other Brethren in addressing this challenge from a Jesus-centered perspective? Do you want your congregation to speak up and take action on this issue but don’t know how to get started? 

Whether you or your congregation have already taken steps or are looking to get involved, OEP’s Church of the Brethren Gun Violence Prevention Action Team invites you to our second quarterly organizing meeting specifically for gun violence prevention advocates connected to the Church of the Brethren.

Previous attendance at our quarterly meetings is not required, but we will build on work done in the previous meeting. Slides and resources from our Dec 1, 2023 meeting can be found here [https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/1LTc6HVDGMSBB_2bpn36BXF4BnCnHHsje].
