The North Carolina Council of Churches welcomes the Fourth Jurisdiction of the Unity Fellowship Church Movement as its newest member. The group becomes the 18th denomination which has chosen to work with the Council on issues of social justice and Christian unity. More than 1.5 million people of faith in the state are represented through these member organizations.
“We welcome our sisters and brothers from the UFCM and look forward to working with them in our mutual call to serve the least of these,” said Executive Director George Reed. “Going forward we will be a stronger organization for their presence.”
In her letter seeking membership on behalf of her judicatory, Bishop Tonyia M. Rawls wrote, “We would consider it an honor to join in your efforts to ‘enable denominations, congregations, and people of faith to individually and collectively impact our state on issues such as economic justice and development, human well-being, equality, compassion and peace, following the example and mission of Jesus Christ’.”
