Church & Society

The Board of Church and Society of the West Michigan Conference United Methodist Church represents more that 400 United Methodist Churches in the western side of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan.

It advocates for the church on social issues, especially those affecting the poor and marginalized of our communities.  “Peace with justice” is one of its goals.  Each year, it presents a Peacemaker of the Year to an individual or a group that best exemplifies peacemaking in the name of Christ.
The Board also presents an annual Peace Sermon of the Year award.
 Current chairperson: Amee Paparella
