Common Ground Presents

Solidarity Ministry

Solidarity Ministry exist to amplify the voices of marginalized, inform believers in areas of injustice, and  create a space to listen, learn, lament, so we can better love our neighbor as ourselves, and expand God’s Kingdom in solidarity.
 
We are too committed to doing justice, loving kindness and walking humbly with our God, it is our aim that the world recognizes us as Jesus’ disciples by our love for one another.
Micah 6:8, John 13:35

We acknowledge the land currently occupied by Common Ground Church as the traditional home of the Miwok people and we respect, recognize, and remember the Black and Brown Indigenous labor connected with the land we currently steward.

The state of California is home to more than 110 Federally Recognized Indian Tribes, representing the most diverse set of tribal nations anywhere in the United States. Despite centuries of genocide and occupation, the Miwok people continue as vibrant and resilient federally recognized tribe. We honor and celebrate our Miwok brothers, sisters, and neighbors as the ancestral stewards of this land and honor their sustained existence.
