Social Justice

Witness for a better world

St. Mark’s holds social justice as a deep value and part of the living out of our faith. We address these themes in our worship, and encourage our participants to engage in these issues both locally and globally.

The United Methodist Church has a long history of concern for social justice. Wesley and the early Methodists expressed their opposition to societal ills such as slavery, smuggling, inhumane prison conditions, alcohol abuse, and child labor.

As the agency tasked specifically to assist The United Methodist Church’s work of advocacy, the United Methodist Board of Church and Society works to provide “witness and action on issues of human well-being, justice, peace” through research, education and training. Learn more about their work.
