Church to Community


While UMC politics makes headlines, local churches are making a difference. 

The General Commission on Religion and Race is in connection with many local churches that have game changing relationships with their communities. How can the expertise and experience happening in these local churches be shared with the larger Church? 

Through Church to Community, GCORR will highlight congregations across the connection who are working with their neighbors to build a more just and equitable community. Their unique programs and key insights will be featured as success stories others can learn from and incorporate into their own ministry settings. GCORR will also host conversations through social media to build active engagement between churches that are growing into their neighborhoods, and and the people partnering who make revitalization possible.

GCORR equips churches to be relevant and to reach more people across lines of race, age and class. Church to Community lifts up lives that are being changed, bridges that are being built, and people who are finding more in common the more they come together.

GCORR is building the capacity of The United Methodist Church to be contextually relevant and to reach more people, younger people, and more diverse people as we make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
