Civic Engagement

Our Mission

“The United Methodist Church believes God’s love for the world is an active and engaged love, a love seeking justice and liberty. We cannot just be observers. So we care enough about people’s lives to risk interpreting God’s love, to take a stand, to call each of us into a response, no matter how controversial or complex. The church helps us think and act out a faith perspective, not just responding to all the other “mind makers-up” that exist in our society…

Taking an active stance in society is nothing new for followers of John Wesley. He set the example for us to combine personal and social piety. Ever since predecessor churches to United Methodism flourished in the United States, we have been known as a denomination involved with people’s lives, with political and social struggles, having local to international mission implications. Such involvement is an expression of the personal change we experience in our baptism and conversion.”

 

What's on Your Ballot? Vote Local!

City Councils are a highly important but often overlooked governing body that identifies service and project priorities for the community such as affordable housing, zoning regulations, and road pavement. 

Local School Boards develop the annual budget to run the school system, hire and evaluate the superintendent, and set school policies such as history curriculum and what books school libraries can stock.

Local election winners are sometimes determined by less than 100 votes! Don’t give your power to someone who may not have the same priorities as you do but who makes the time to vote.
