Our Faith Isn’t Just About What We Believe — It’s Also About The Work We Do to Help Bring About God’s New Creation Right Here and Now.
Whether or not you join our congregation, you are welcome to join us in our social justice work and service — for a decade, a year, or a day.
Loving Justice Team
This newly-formed ministry is made up of Incarnation members and people from the wider community who have joined together to learn about and do advocacy work around a wide range of social justice issues. The Loving Justice Team’s efforts include regular/monthly events, including lectures, story slams (witnessing), and documentary screenings, as well as celebrations incorporating the arts. For more information, contact Jamie Taylor.

The Nicaragua Project
Incarnation is deeply involved in efforts to build a cultural exchange center and eco-hotel in Catarina, Nicaragua, as part of our overall efforts to promote sustainable, inclusive, economic development in that community. Visit The Nicaragua Project website to learn more, or contact Lorrie Douglas for details. The next Incarnation trip to Catarina is scheduled for February 2016!
Ministering to Incarcerated Persons and Their Families
Incarnation members were among the main organizers of Washtenaw County’s Michigan Prisoner ReEntry Program. Today, Vicar Joe and other Incarnation members continue to support people transitioning out of prison, those who are currently incarcerated, and their families. At the same time, the focus of our work is shifting to efforts to create a restorative justice system in Washtenaw County. Contact Vicar Joe Summers for details.
Faith and Food Garden
Each year, Incarnation members plant and nurture a garden as part of Food Gatherers’ Faith and Food initiative. In one week alone we donated thirty-five pounds of tomatoes! Contact Fran Mayes for more.
Other Social Justice Work
Incarnation members are also involved in a wide variety of additional advocacy efforts, including gun-violence awareness, civil rights for LGBT persons, and working to end homelessness.
