FPC Action

FPC Action

The prior Justice & Peace Committee is now called FPC Action. FPC Action, advocating for human rights while we work for justice and public policy, reflects our faith and love in action. If you have a passion for advocating for the environment, women’s health rights, ending racism, or other social justice issues, we would love to have you join us. Please contact Becky Hagee (410.695.1986), Jenny Davids (619.865.1430), or Cathy Shultz (410.269.1165).

Member Jessie Sims carries a sign showing her support of women’s rights, along with Sims' aunt, Sue Dodds, and her mother, Laurie Hewitt. The march was held in downtown Annapolis on January 21, 2017.

Environmental Stewardship

Environmental Stewardship focuses on developing actions and programs to protect and renew our environmental resources through advocacy and establishing role models of behaviors. In 2011 FPC was recognized by the Presbyterian Church, U.S.A. as a Certified Earth Care Congregation in its commitment to environmental stewardship in worship, education, facilities and outreach. We are exploring options to purchase alternative energy (solar and wind) for use on buildings in our church campus while encouraging members to be aware of environmental concerns within their own homes.

Social Justice

In the past, the focus of the Social Justice team was to initiate thought-provoking discussions on social justice and human rights issues within our congregation and the community at large. The team sponsored a Middle-East series concerning issues in Israel and Palestine (Jean Francois Seznec's 2015 lecture: Listen to PART 1 and PART 2). Also, members participated with agencies in social concerns such as hunger, gun violence, the death penalty, immigration, and welfare. This work has often been coordinated with the Baltimore Presbytery and community churches and interfaith groups.
