NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

The Westminster Presbyterian Church in Nacogdoches is working to promote peace and unity here in East Texas.

The churches action for peace committee was created about 6 months ago.

The group has been meeting to discuss ways to take action to help promote peaceful living out in the world by reaching out to local organizations, aligning with area efforts and expanding world views by connecting with others on a more meaningful level.

Take Action For Peace committee member Michelle Peck said you can get to know a lot about a person by just taking the time to reach out.

"It's nice to know that we can learn from engaging with people who are outside of our small social circles, or our church circles, or our school circles, or even our business circles." Peck said.

The organization is currently made up of 13 members and they are looking to start working alongside Love Inc.to help develop more community outreach programs and events in Nacogdoches.
