Faith Family Freedom

Public Policy Engagement & Outreach

Welcome to The Road’s public policy engagement, Faith, Family & Freedom!  The three F’s sum up much of what is important in terms of first – relationship with God and our ability to serve God with freedom in our country, state, and community.  Thus, religious freedom is paramount to being able to exercise our faith.  Family – our earthly biological family and being in the family of God and the relationships grown from family are central to our health and well-being. Freedom – the ability to think freely, move freely, speak freely and act freely without hindrance or restraint (in keeping with our earthly laws} always being reminded that God’s laws give us the most freedom.

On this page, we will have resources and links to civic engagement and legislative issues that are of importance to The Road congregation.
