Micah Center Unveils New Website

GRAND RAPIDS, February 17, 2009--The Micah Center is pleased to announce the arrival of its new website, located on the Internet at www.themicahcenter.com. This online resource will offer users insight into the objectives and actions of the Micah Center, a grassroots social justice movement of people of faith in West Michigan. The site introduces newcomers to the Center's five action groups and provides a variety of resources for justice-seekers in the community.

This development represents a significant "next step" the Micah Center resolved to make in order to strengthen internal and external communication efforts.  The Center hopes to utilize the site to facilitate growth both in numbers and in impact on the local and broader communities in the name of Shalom, God's peace and justice on earth.

The Micah Center is comprised of a growing number of Christians from varying backgrounds interested in matters of faith and justice. The Center hosts monthly lectures relating to social justice and supports five action groups addressing five distinct yet often interconnected aspects of justice: poverty and hunger, health care, environment/creation care, immigration, and restorative justice.  Meetings are held at 7 p.m. on the first and third Tuesday of each month at Hope Reformed Church, 2010 Kalamazoo SE, in Grand Rapids.
