Methodists have long demonstrated a concern for social justice taking unpopular positions on controversial issues such as the slave trade, health care for the poor, the cruel treatment of prisoners, and education for all. Our United Methodist Social Principles speak to human issues in the contemporary world from a biblical and theological foundation.
Our Social Action Ministry team doesn't just educate our congregation and say we are allies.
We actively partner with other groups and organizations to work toward peace, justice and dignity for all. PopUP classes on social justice issues and a lobby library of social justice resources educate. Ministry to those on the margins gets us out of our comfort zone.
For us, faith and good works go hand in hand.
