Faith in Action
Missions and Advocacy
In our United Methodist tradition, personal piety walks hand-in-hand with social holiness. To put it simply, our spirituality “walks the talk” when engaged in acts of mercy (direct helping) coupled with voices for justice (long-term advocacy leading to social change). Portage Chapel Hill United Methodist Church has many, many ways to be involved in working for a community that looks more like God’s intention…a place of wholeness, peace and justice. Watch this space for emerging opportunities. …And, if you have a great idea for a new mission or cause for justice, talk with the “Faith in Action” Core Team or Sheila Bigelow, 269-323-9783.
