But as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) continues authorizing emergency use of COVID-19 vaccines, you likely have questions. Find out about the benefits of the COVID-19 vaccines, how they work, the possible side effects and the importance of continuing to take infection prevention steps." - Mayo Clinic Article

Social Justice Ministry

Ms. Kathy Moore - Ministry Leader

"There have been many great movements within our Christian faith. Methodism did not start as a denomination but as a reform movement within the Anglican community. The name Next Movement comes from our belief that the next great movement within the Christian community will involve a Jesus of justice who corresponds with the Jesus of salvation in the way that we preach, teach, and live out our faith."
