Who we are
In a city as large in size and diverse in population as the city of Houston; we recognize that like the larger world the ongoing challenge for God’s children to live justly and loving in what Dr. Martin Luther king called the global house. The people of Just Love are concerned with those who are being marginalized within church and society and our faith leads us to be that light that shines on the hill, showing those around that we take inclusion, justice, and love seriously. We desire to be the movers and shakers for peace and justice in our city.
Loving God – Loving Neighbors – Ending Marginalization
We are creating an intentionally inclusive faith community, committed to the transformative power of love.
We are living out our faith as we engage the world around us, mobilizing for justice and bringing wholeness to our communities.
We are working to break cycles of division and marginalization, as we live into Just love.
We are a community affiliated with both the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ. Our congregation is welcoming and affirming of all people.
Just Love is an Open and Affirming congregation, embracing diversity and affirming the dignity and worth of every person, since we are all created in God’s image. We are deeply mindful of how the Church has marginalized certain people groups; we are working to disrupt and dismantle those harmful practices.
Our community believes everyone should be seen, heard and welcome. Love welcomes all, every race, ethnic background, age, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, socio-economic background, marital status and faith background. We welcome all to share in the life, leadership, ministry, fellowship, worship, responsibilities and blessings of participation in our congregation.
Our community currently meets for worship every 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month.
We meet at 5:30pm in the gymnasium of First Christian Church.
