The General Board of Church and Society (GBCS) challenges United Methodists to work in areas of important social concern and develops resources to inform, motivate, and train United Methodists on issues of social justice in the society. 

Racism & Justice

Please preregister by clicking on the

"Sign Up Genius" icon                        
 for the ZOOM Conversation surrounding
faith, racism, and justice. We’ll utilize Sign Up Genius,

so we can limit each conversation to less than 10 people total.


Sunday, July 5th at 11:15 AM. 


We'll have time for conversation and listening.  We'll also spend time in prayer and brainstorming ideas for how we can be part of the solution and not the problem.

From Church & Society Committee


Please join Church & Society in our effort to reduce the damage to God’s earth by participating in our


BYOC  (bring your own cup) program
during Taste of Faith.


By bringing your own reusable coffee cup, you not only put less in a landfill, add less pollution in our oceans, you also save Faith UMC money on styrofoam cups, and create less trash for pick up. Styrofoam cups will still be available on Sundays if you forget your cup. PLEASE consider bringing your own. IT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE. IT WILL HELP GOD’S CREATION.


NOTE: There is now a cupboard above the kitchenette designated to store your clean, labeled, reusable cup.

“The Lord took man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it, and take care of it.”

- Genesis 2:15

Sleeping Mats for the Homeless

We have enough bags to keep us busy for a while, but need some help from crocheters.

Interested? Contact JoEllen at (708) 301-6189. If you don't croche,t but want to learn, JoEllen will show you how.

Take a Book - Give a Book

Church & Society's Give-a-Book Take-a-Book program is expanding to include books for teens and adults (No violent or sexually explicit books please). If you have appropriate books please donate them. And, as always, we are looking for children’s books. The kids visiting Operation Blessing are keeping the shelves empty.


Books can be left in the box outside room 4.



For more information about SWIFT contact JoEllen Simmons.
