To encourage Christian participation in public life, our Church & Society Forum distributes timely information about ways to affect public policy and offers a non-partisan venue for selecting the social concerns priorities for our congregation.

Using the guidance of the United Methodist Church’s General Board of Church and Society [GBCS], the Church Council of Greater Seattle, and the Faith Action Network of Washington, Church and Society will highlight problems and sponsor public events. Please contact our coordinator, Bradley Scharf, professor of social policy with questions or suggestions.
