JUSTICE AND WITNESS MINISTRY
Our Justice and Witness Ministry Team is truly involved in the community in a multitude of ways. Take a deeper look at how we are changing the community and discover what matters to us.
Voter Suppression Work Group
We affirm that each person is created in the image of God and deserves full citizenship rights. This group provides both information and opportunities for activism as the rights of voters, particularly people of color and those who are poor, continue to be threatened.
Shema and Cuba Partnership
We have partnered with Shema Baptist Church in Cuba to share experiences, faith, and culture as well as monetarily support the ministries of Shema Baptist Church.
As an open and affirming church, we have a responsibility to work for LGBTQ+ equality in the social and faith communities. Our church is partnered with PFLAG Dayton and Rainbow Elder Care, and often participates in LGBTQ+ events.
Domestic Violence Initiative
The DVI exists to raise awareness concerning family and domestic violence and to find ways to support organizations that are helping domestic violence victims. We place great importance on making Harmony Creek Church a truly safe space.
Feeding Friends Food Pantry
We offer a choice food pantry at our church to help fight food insecurity for members of our community. We work with other churches and organizations to gather food items as well as pet food and toiletries to be given to families. The pantry is open every Thursday from 5:30-6:30 pm, and we serve area codes 45419, 45420, 45429, 45440, 45458, and 45459.
Our church is currently partnering with a large family from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) that has been resettled in Dayton. We are continuously enriched by this relationship as the children blossom and the family works toward self-sufficiency.
Our Justice and Witness Ministry team leads the church to engage in missions and ministries that reach out to our community and beyond by...
- creating places of refuge and renewal for those who are wounded and/or ignored by the church

- acting with compassion
- advocating for justice
- caring for the Earth
- working for peace
... in working with the church's stated mission of demonstrating God's love.
