“We call upon United Methodists to address gun violence in their local context.” —UM Book of Resolutions


Many topics in our culture can provoke strong emotion or partisan political responses, but not add assistance or ministry and instead perpetuate the problem. Churches should be leaders in community building by being part of transformational, faithful conversations that enhance relationships. We are to love God, and love our neighbors as we love ourselves. Below are resources to support your church's efforts to prevent gun violence in your community.
