“What does God require of you but to do justice and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God?”
RESURRECTION MCC VALUES
Love is our greatest moral value. Inclusion is a primary focus of our ministry. We believe that all people, as they are and where they are, should be welcomed at God’s table.
Our deep desire is to offer a safe and open community for people to worship, learn, share, and grow in their faith. We are committed to equipping ourselves and each other to do the work that God has called us to do in the world.
A message of liberation guides our ministry. We believe that when people are invited to experience God through the life and ministry of Christ, lives are transformed.
We are committed to uplifting all people and standing with those who suffer under the weight of oppressive systems. We are guided by our commitment to global human rights.

Can we make this (below) happen?
What Happens When You Take Action?
When you take an online action, you will be directed to a webpage that will explain the current legislative issue and provide a sample letter or petition for you to send to the targeted decision-makers. When you fill out your information, your letter, which you can personalize according to your own particular views on an issue, will be sent to the indicated decision-makers (i.e. Senators, Congresspeople, the President, or whoever is the appropriate recipient of your message). These messages appear in their email inboxes or fax machines as though you had sent it from their website email form or your own fax machine.
Does Taking Action Electronically Make A Difference?
Yes! Decision-makers take notice when their mailboxes fill with emails and faxes. Congressional staff members keep regular tallies of the number of messages they receive on an issue, and it can make a difference on whether or not members of Congress support or oppose legislative measures. MCC Public Policy Team and J2 advocates have sent messages on an wide range of issues from environmental justice, hate crimes, Sustainable Development Goals for ending global poverty, violence against women, federal, state and local budget policy priorities, mass incarceration, Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO), the minimum wage and the protection of civil liberties.
