Social Justice Ministry provides opportunities and resources to study root causes of human suffering in the community and around the world — including unjust systems.
We try to identify changes needed and advocate for those changes, working toward long-term solutions.
We are exploring issues of Fair Trade, Hunger, Poverty, Moral Budgets, Nonviolence, and Human Rights.
We are a ministry formed to help LAUMC fulfill its mission to be:
A church doing justice, loving kindness and walking humbly with God.
from Micah 6:6-8
“It’s not enough for us to enjoy the privileges and prosperity of our life in Silicon Valley. We are not comfortable knowing that one in four children in California live in poverty, or that thousands of children will die every day of hunger and malnutrition-related diseases around the world … we insist that God’s grace and possibility can save the broken world in which we live. We yearn for a marriage of personal spirituality and social responsibility in our lives.” —Mark S. Bollwinkel, former senior pastor
