We are excited to announce the formation of a Social Justice Ministry team at Webster Hills UMC.

Our Mission

The Social Justice Ministry Team at Webster Hills United Methodist Church seeks to advance inclusion, affirmation and equity for all of God's creation through deliberate and honest awareness, education and action. We strive to stand up against evil, injustice, and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves and to live out the teachings of Jesus.


Initially, our focus will be on awareness and education, so we would love to hear from you about areas of importance and causes you are called to. We plan to also work with other churches in our community to highlight opportunities for action and create a resource network. 

If you'd like more information or would like to share your thoughts directly to the team, please email Lisa Miller at or Lynn Hitner at

He has shown you O mortal what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
Micah 6:8

Human Trafficking Awareness

While the movie, Sound of Freedom, has caused controversy, the issue of human trafficking is important. 


The studio acknowledges taking "creative liberties" in their depictions of human trafficking which raise concerns among anti-trafficking experts. They say they offer an incomplete portrait of a real and urgent problem. Because human trafficking takes many forms and spans many populations, it is nearly impossible to drill down to what a common victim of human trafficking looks like. 

To  learn more about human trafficking, here are some resources:


U.S. Department of State - About Human Trafficking
Interpol - Human trafficking and migrant smuggling 
Michigan Law -
Human Trafficking Clinc & Lab

The United Methodist Church General Commission on Race & Religion hosted a webinar in May on White Allyship: What it means to be an antiracist ally.
