United Methodists who wish to make their voices heard regarding the crisis in Gaza may wish to visit the Methodist Federation for Social Action website at


The Federation, "an independent voice for justice within Methodism" for more than 100 years, serves to mobilize clergy and laity within The United Methodist Church to take action on issues of peace, poverty, and people's rights - within the church, the nation, and the world. As an independent organization, MFSA is not an official United Methodist body, but works primarily through the ministries of The United Methodist Church to support and augment peace and justice ministries at local, Conference, and national levels.


United Methodist Women has posted a Letter of Concern About the Humanitarian Crisis in Gaza on its website at, along with an Urgent Call to Action.
