CHURCH AND SOCIETY
The Book of Resolutions contains not only the resolutions and policy statements passed by the most recent General Conference, but also all such statements still considered to represent the position of The United Methodist Church. The text of any resolution is considered the official position of the denomination on that subject.
Resolution 3426 outlines 11 areas The United Methodist Church is called to pursue in order to address gun violence.
A 3-session Bible study has been created by The General Board of Church and Society (GBCS). The study can be downloaded and used in local congregations to provide a scriptural/theological grounding for conversations.
The Church in Society
The Social Principles ¶ 162 addresses The United Methodist Church stance on matters related to our Social Community.
