All members of Salem UMC (Mid-County & South-City sites) and our greater community are invited to connect online for discussion, education, and advocacy. Our goal is to address the root causes of injustice which plague us locally and far beyond and to take action.
While we recognize that there will be varying opinions among us, this group will seek to honor differing viewpoints using “Holy Conferencing” as described in the UMC as a way to foster communication and awareness of social justice issues. Acts of Justice and Mercy go hand in hand. Salem Social Justice ministries will work closely with our Outreach Ministry Team which seeks to serve the immediate needs of hunger and literacy through Haven Street at The Connection and in partnership with- Epworth & LifeWise STL.
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. – Micah 6:8
