The Church in Society Team is “dedicated to the work of living faith, seeking justice, and pursuing peace.” We are guided by local issues, personal passions, and the General Board of Church & Society.
Below are our current topics and initiatives:
Gun Control – Heeding God’s Call To End Gun Violence
Mass Incarceration – Peace With Justice Sunday
Global Hunger – Rise Against Hunger meal packing event
We conduct fundraisers to support our Rise Against Hunger meal packing event, including ‘Dine and Donate’ nights and those listed below.
All are welcome to join our monthly meetings and to pursue justice with us!
Spring Plant Sale
Beautiful flowering plants and herbs are available for purchase each spring, with proceeds benefitting the Rise Against Hunger Meal packing project.
Fall Bulb Sale
The Church in Society team sponsors a fall bulb sale to raise money for Rise Against Hunger. 50% of sales go toward funds needed for the Rise Against Hunger meal packing project, in which we pack more than 35,000 meals to send to people in need.
World Communion Sunday
On World Communion Sunday we celebrate communion with Christians around the world. For more information, visit the General Board of Church and Society of the United Methodist Church.
