Living Faith • Seeking Justice • Pursuing Peace

FUMC C&S header

The Church and Society Committee, which formed November 2021, focuses on education, action and advocacy with decision-makers to eliminate the injustices experienced by marginalized people. The committee was approved by the administrative board in October. The group’s first target is  advocating for public transportation options in Livingston County for people to get to work over the weekend.

If you have questions or are interested in joining the group to learn more about justice and advocacy issues within the church and community please reach out to the church office or contact Randie Clawson.

Our local Church & Society Committee takes it name from the “big church” version, the General Board of Church and Society, which is dedicated to the work of living faith, seeking justice, and pursuing peace. Learn more about the General Board of Church & Society’s work at https://www.umcjustice.org/
