Social Justice

By Our Silence….

When St. Stephen went through the process of becoming a Reconciling Congregation,people stated that they didn’t realize the need for becoming a Reconciling congregation since St. Stephen had always been open and accepting. Then we had our task force and had a panel of LGBT couples come and speak. It was one of the couples on the panel who stated that by our silence we condone the anti-gay stance of the UMC.

By our silence, we consent to injustice in all its forms.

These are the specific areas we will be addressing in 2017:
  • Refugees/Immigration 
  • Race/White Privilege 
  • Gun Violence 
  • Women’s Issues
  • LGBT
