SOPHIA – Social Justice Ministry

Throughout the New Testament, Jesus and his followers urge Christians to take action and work for social justice in their communities. At Church of the Resurrection, we are committed to seeking justice in an increasingly fragmented world. Our church is an active member of SOPHIA, an interfaith organization of people in Waukesha County who work with agencies and public officials to facilitate change.

Church of the Resurrection is one of many churches in the county with a “core group”— a group of people within the church who are interested in SOPHIA’s mission and goals. This group meets once a month to read and discuss books, participate in devotions and talk about issues facing the larger group. Individual members can choose to be part of county-wide task forces, which focus on one of SOPHIA’s main areas of focus:

  • Immigration reform
  • Prison reform
  • Health care
  • Fair housing

Each of the groups participates in lobbying efforts — listening to budget discussions, meeting with public officials and participating in protests and state action days.
