MAKING THINGS RIGHT IN OUR BROKEN WORLD
Love Mercy, Do Justice (LMDJ) is an intergenerational team of ACC members who have been inspired by the initiative of the Evangelical Covenant Church to join God in making things right in our broken world by helping hurting people (love mercy) and addressing the causes of that hurt (do justice). Our goal is to resource and equip Arvada Covenant in its call to love, serve, and work together with people at the margins toward holistic individual, family and community transformation.

OUR MISSION/GOAL AND BEHAVIORAL COVENANT
“And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8 NIV
We have adapted our mission and goal after the example set for us by the Evangelical Covenant Church. Also, as a team, we have created a set of values (Curiosity, Participation, Respect, Prayer, Confidentiality) by which we all agree to approach our conversations and experiences together.
A HOLISTIC APPROACH
The ARC of Racial Justice offers three ways to guide a holistic pursuit of racial justice – Awareness, Relationship, and Commitment to Action. The following document details some of the ways we have approached the ARC of Racial Justice as we continue to learn and grow as the LMDJ Team at ACC:
LMDJ STUDY MATERIALS
The linked document below contains links to our previous and present study resources for people to use individually or as a small group. If you have any interest in someone from the LMDJ team joining you in studying one of these resources, please contact us and we’d be happy to do our best to come alongside you in that.
The disciples asked Jesus, “Teach us to pray.” There are times in this journey when we do not know what to pray in response to the brokenness in the world around us. As the LMDJ Team, we have taken time to respond to what we are learning and to current events in collective guided prayer. Following are some of the prayers, liturgies, and laments we have used so far.
If you have questions about the LMDJ team or would like to get involved, please contact Laura Rodriguez.
