Advocate

United Methodists are called to love their neighbors by seeking peace and justice for all. As a denomination and as individuals, we seek to discern how to faithfully do that in a broken, beloved world.

Join Our Micah 6:8 Team

Micah 6:8 Team addresses social justice issues through study, education, advocacy and action.  Contact Joe Burton for information.

“What does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

Practice Advocacy
The relationships we form in our communities, often through our service and ministries, lead us to be advocates for justice. We cannot remain silent when we witness our neighbors impacted by broken social, economic, and political systems that result in poverty, conflict, and oppression.

The Micah 6:8 Team recommends the website of the UMC General Board of Church and Society to discover how United Methodists can advocate for current justice issues: Take Action • GBCS

Our world faces many problems and we can be overwhelmed by the needs we see. This resource can help you find a particular issue that you are passionate about and provide ways to faithfully assist in God’s work on it.
