Churches all around the country are seeing violence and guns affect their communities, be it through the news, mass shootings, suicide, neighborhood violence or other ways. Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) U.S. is working at reducing this violence in these communities. Some of that work includes:
- Offering resources for congregations to talk about guns, including a conversation guide for congregations to address this difficult and divisive topic and a theological resource to help congregations connect Biblical themes of peace to the reality of violence in today’s context.
- Partnering with RAWtools to offer peacemaker events, read more about the program.
- Helping equip people to advocate for gun violence prevention.
