Social Action Resources

Children’s Sabbath, Social Principles, Other UMC Resources
The General Board of Church & Society of The United Methodist Church provides many resources related to Social Action. From this web page you can find the Social Principles of The United Methodist Church, information about special Sundays and Justice Days (including Children’s Sabbath), and many other programs.

UMW Green Team
“The Green Team’s advocacy goal is to realize environmental justice,” explained Sung-Ok Lee, executive secretary for community action for the Women’s Division and coordinator of the program. Environmental justice is the fair treatment and involvement of all people — regardless of race, ethnicity or economic status — in the decision-making process on environmental public policies.  See Green Team resources here.

Advocacy
As United Methodists, we understand our call to transform the world involves personal, social and civic righteousness.
Find out how to put faith into action with resources from Church & Society.
