Peace with Justice Sunday

July 5th, 2019 by Chip

Peace with Justice Sunday is a United Methodist church mission that supports ministries and programs that advocate for peace and social justice both locally and globally. Our gifts combined with other United Methodists’ gifts support a host of programs.

Some programs support young people caught in the cross-fire of gang violence to demonstrate alternatives to violence or to counsel incarcerated youths and provide a path towards a brighter future. There are also programs working to end global injustices like human trafficking.

In Luke 4:18, Jesus sets forth his vision for himself and the church- “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.”

With our gifts, the mission of the church goes forward in its mission to end global injustice and restore peace to families, communities and nations.

On Peace with Justice Sunday, we are called to care for every one of God’s children especially those who have never known peace before. Your gift will make a world of difference in creating a more peaceful world.
