We believe in doing things. 

We want you to join us.

Wage Peace Every Month!

We are planning multiple interfaith service projects throughout the year. Stay tuned and and sign up when you can!

Why Interfaith Service?

Interfaith service addresses one of the greatest challenges facing our communities: Diversity. Who are these Jews, these Christians, these Muslims, these aliens in our midst from other lands and religions? Well, let’s get to know them. Because we are in fact “All In This Together”, we must actively seek ways of working and being together, building the bridges necessary for a diverse and wonderful community. God did not make us a single people of one language, one skin color, one size, one religion. God made us diverse. And because we are diverse, interesting, complex and wonderful, we at times get confused and offend one another. We need time together to learn and grow as a community that enjoys and respects the differences among our peoples.

Interfaith Service projects provide a fun and meaningful way of getting to know your neighbors while helping those in need. Monthly projects in the planning stage include: Habitat for Humanity, Save The Sound, Prisoner Advocacy, and more…  Subscribe to our newsletter and follow IWagePeace on social media where Bruce will be on the loose with the latest updates and news!

Our November 2023 monthly service project took place on Saturday the 18th with Christian Community Action of New Haven.

Thank you to each of our volunteers who signed up to participate! 

This wonderful organization aids the poor, regardless of religious affiliation, nationality, or status: They serve New Haven area families and individuals in crises giving them opportunities to:

  • Meet their unexpected, short-term, urgent and basic needs for food, housing, fuel, information and referrals.
  • Access childcare and employment services that will increase family stability, health, safety and well-being
  • Realize their unique abilities, strengths and potential through leadership development, grassroots organizing and training
  • Address root causes of poverty, homelessness and income inequality, by promoting changes in public policy using individual success stories, data about unmet needs, and results in our delivery of services.

Christian Community Action:

IWagePeace has pledged to raise $1,200 in the month of November to pay for turkey stuffing and soup to fill the Thanksgiving baskets for the Christian Community Action annual distribution.  Help us reach our goal!

The Summer of 2023: Interfaith Service Day, August 6th 

On a beautiful summer Sunday , over 400 volunteers of all ages and of different faith and spiritual traditions converged at the New Haven Green for Interfaith Service Day 2023. Participants joined together in multi-ethnic and interdenominational groups to volunteer their time in service to community organizations, for enlightening and productive conversation and listening, enjoyed tours of the Crypt beneath the Center Church Meetinghouse, enjoyed a communal noon hour feast accompanied by live music and much more!

Founder and President, IWagePeace

Thank you to each volunteer. Thank you, each faith partner and service provider, for risking your time and good name on this audacious effort toward faith in action united against bigotry, united against antisemitism, united against islamophobia, united against white supremacy, and united against poverty and abuse of power, by Waging Peace with Justice. God made us a diverse and wonderful people. The day was gorgeous not because of the sunshine but because of the love, compassion and mercy you helped bring into that light.

Remember Our Slogans:

We are all in this together
We do not need to agree on everything to work together for justice and peace.
We will not let the perfect become the enemy of the good.
Humor doth the heart like good medicine
