We strive to engage all age groups of the congregation in seeking a just peace in the Middle East through education, advocacy, and action, offering diverse programs about the situation on the ground and encouraging specific actions. Our major project is the Olive Oil Ministry, a coalition of 19 local churches selling Palestinian olive oil products.
The Tree of Life Educational Fund (TOL) a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation was established by The First Congregational Church of Old Lyme to provide cross-cultural and transnational travel experiences, interfaith conferences and educational opportunities to help participants to become more enlightened and more engaged in making this a more just and peaceful world in which to live.
The mission of the St Michael’s Task Force is to demonstrate, in accordance with the Christian theology of love and non-violent solidarity with the oppressed, that the people of St. Michael’s can make their voices heard and act bravely when we see injustice, oppression, and abuse of power.
