Westminster partners with Covenant Presbyterian, First Presbyterian, Cary Presbyterian, Trinity Avenue Presbyterian, and the Church of Reconciliation on the Moral Message Ministry. Church members gather regularly to pray, learn about legislative initiatives, and write to government officials or newspaper editors. The overarching premise is to educate ourselves and then raise our voices where policy and political processes ignore or, worse, actively diminish the rights of one group in relation to another.
The group’s mission statement is: As people of faith, we seek to bring more love and inclusion to government policy at all levels. We strive to listen to God and understand others while influencing government policy, legislation, and action toward equity and justice for all.
It is important that we vote, both as citizens and as Christians. Visit the NC State Board of Elections website to find everything you need to know about voting in the upcoming elections, from registering to vote for the first time to finding your precinct, early voting, and viewing a sample ballot. Please note that signatures on mail-in ballots must be notarized or observed by two witnesses. WPC’s business manager, Sharon Morgan, is a registered notary – please contact her for an appointment if you would like to have your mail-in ballot notarized.
The Moral Message Ministry is part of the work of Westminster’s Racial Equity Team. Contact the church office to learn more and find out how you can raise your voice and get involved!
