Fair Trade Products
In May, 2017, Ascension was recognized as the 25th Fair Trade Congregation in the United States by the national Fair Trade Campaigns organization for our ongoing commitment.
Ascension’s Global Ministries Team offers Fair Trade products at sale events periodically throughout the ministry year. These events feature coffee, tea, nuts, cocoa and chocolate from Equal Exchange and coffee from LWR/Thrive Farmers Market. If you missed an event and want to place a special order or need to restock your supply contact the church office.
Fair Trade farmers and artisans are more than producers or suppliers. They are partners. We join with Fair Trade in celebrating Fair Trade partnerships promoting human, economic and environmental justice.
In our Baptism services, the congregation pledges to “help children grow in the Christian faith and life” by teaching them “to care for others and the world God made, and (to) work for justice and peace.” Thank you for teaching by your example.
