Laundry Project



 

For the people served by the Laundry Project, washing clothes is a financial burden. As a result, they may be unable to wash as frequently as they would like. Since 2009, Current Initiatives has been providing relief from this burden in many different communities.

On April 14th from 10am to 1pm, Wedgewood will partner with Current in the next Laundry Project day. We will be trained in the morning before patrons arrive.

If you would like to volunteer, please fill out the form below:

Wedgewood Social Justice Book Club



 

The Wedgewood Social Justice Book Club will meet again on Thursday, April 11th at 7:00pm. We will continue reading "The Hundred Years' War on Palestine: A History of Settler Colonialism and Resistance, 1917-2017" by Rashid Khalidi. 

“This book presents the most dogent, comprehensive, and compelling account yet of the struggle from the Palestinian vantage point. No one who cares about the Middle East’s central conflict can afford to ignore this perspective and all policymakers need to grapple with its implications.” - Lisa Anderson, Foreign Affairs
       
Want to know more about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict? Join us as we begin a study of this well researched and timely text. Read through page 152. Wedgewood members and nonmembers are welcome.

Statement on Israel and Palestine
Unanimously Approved by
Wedgewood Congregation


At the 2023 Annual Meeting of the Alliance of Baptists, of which Wedgewood Community Church is a member, a statement on Israel and Palestine was adopted. The statement has since been adopted by Association of Welcoming and Affirming Baptists, Baptist Peace Fellowship, Creation Justice Ministries, Freedom Center for Social Justice, Greenfaith, and Hearts United for Good. Wedgewood partners with all of these organizations. Many individual churches have also voted to adopt this official statement.   

The statement has 4 main points: 

“The Alliance has voted to call Israel an apartheid state. In this statement, 1) we affirm our commitment to freedom, justice and equality for the Palestinian people and all people; 2) we oppose all forms of racism, bigotry, discrimination and oppression, 3) we declare ourselves an apartheid-free community; and 4) we pledge to join others in working to end all support to Israel’s apartheid regime, settler colonialism and military occupation.”
