|Woodland Park United Methodist Church has a long history of being active in social justice issues. Our church has taken action locally and worked with other organizations nationally to affect change.
This last decade at Woodland Park has been particullary challenging as our congregation has been called to address the issues of inclusion for our GLBT brothers and sisters. Our struggle for justice began with our support of the Rev. Mark Williams, who was our pastor at the time, when he announced that he was a "practicing homosexual". Our congregation's effort to understand and act on the issues of inclusion have led to adoption of a statement of inclusion and then becoming a member of the Reconciling Ministries Network.
One aspect of those challenging times that our congregation is particullary proud of is that we not only working for inclusion of all people but also were active in many other areas of social justice.
Our congregation will continue to be a place where discussion and action on many social justice issues is always supported.
