SJAT organizes Follen’s many Social Justice programs, including (among many others):

The Worship and Music Action Team supports the work of the worship and music staff in shaping worship services, music (both in and out of worship), and special events and performances. Meeting monthly, the team works closely with the minister, lay leadership, and the music director to assure thoughtful, inspiring worship in the life of the church.
