Supporting Peace with Justice Sunday on May 22 offers opportunities for young people within the Rocky Mountain Conference to lead social justice initiatives within their communities and build relationships globally.

We are blessed to have a number of highly-motivated, social justice-oriented young leaders in the Rocky Mountain Conference. Beginning this summer, these young leaders will work together with adult youth workers, conference staff, and their peers to organize advocacy and service opportunities across the geographic region. To hear more about these efforts and ways that you can engage our young people in social justice efforts, email

Youth and adult leaders in our conference are also exploring opportunities for study and relationship building around issues related to the Middle East. These will include learning about biblical, political, multi-faith and cultural issues from historical and current perspectives. For more information about this emerging opportunity email

Your support of Peace with Justice Sunday enables Rocky Mountain Conference youth and adults to speak up for justice issues and empower communities to advocate based on United Methodist Social Principles. Thank you for your generosity – even a dollar helps!
