Micah Six:Eight

Our Micah 6:8 programs offers multi-day experiences for those wishing to explore deeply the concepts of justice and generosity in their own lives. Through a range of programs designed around immersive experiences in Greater Boston, we will tie together the three elements of the famous passage – doing justice, loving mercy, and walking humbly with God.

How does this work?

Community Partners:
We have developed a network of established community partners, who have been doing the work. This is important to us – we want to support the efforts of existing community organizations. When we are preparing for a weekend of service, we put out a “Call for Service,” and our partners contact us with their needs. If you are participating in a Micah 6:8 service learning experience, you will be meeting those needs. We are continually building this network.

Micah 6:8 Participants:
You are a church, a small group, a family gathering, youth group (a group of any kind, really), who is wishing to explore more deeply the concepts of justice and generosity. Maybe you would like to volunteer, but aren’t sure how to get started, or perhaps you would like a low cost, high impact service learning experience in the Greater Boston Area – Micah 6:8 weekend of service has been developed to be flexible and meet each group’s individual needs. Check out this video to get an idea of what a Micah Experience is like.

Our Hope:
Community Partners + Micah 6:8 Participants = Communities Transformed

It is easy to become paralyzed by the enormity of suffering across the globe/in our communities and our God-given call to do something about that suffering. We fail to act not because we don’t care but because we don’t know the best way to effect change. BFJN’s goal is to empower Christians to take action toward a more just world by first becoming aware of the extent of poverty and oppression faced by our local and global neighbors and then transforming our own lives in response.
