United Methodist Special Sundays
Our gifts are part of building beloved community through faith-based volunteer programs, community developers and programs that work with at-risk teens. As society begins to recover from this health and financial crisis, these programs are vital in strengthening communities that are most impacted.
UMCOR acts as the hands and feet of Christ’s church, moving towards the most vulnerable in their time of need. Helping people in their darkest days doesn’t have to be something “they” do, it can be something “we” do. We hope that you will give generously this upcoming UMCOR Sunday so that we, along with our United Methodist congregations around the globe, can share compassionate relief in the midst of devastation.
The Native American Ministries Sunday offering equips and empowers Native American pastors, congregations, and seminary students to do what only they are called to do: authentically worship and serve Jesus.
Half of our gifts stay with local ministries in this conference and half support the work of Native American United Methodist ministries nationally.
When you support Peace with Justice Sunday, your gift becomes a voice for advocacy around the world. Together we strengthen God’s family with ministries that challenge structures of inequality and empower people and communities through systemic change. Peace with Justice Sunday is an opportunity for United Methodists to highlight the Social Principles that are an integral part of our Wesleyan heritage.
World Communion Sunday helps us recognize our ecumenical oneness in Christ and to bring Christians together in a spirit of unity and peace. In The United Methodist Church, congregations throughout the denomination will also join together to receive a Special Sunday offering that helps scholars from around the world reach their full potential through scholarships, training and mentoring.
When you give to the special offering on United Methodist Student Day, you invest in a channel of hope for young leaders who bring their Wesleyan values into their schools and professions. Supporting United Methodist students gives them a financial boost. It also helps them realize their dreams while giving them a spiritual boost. Your contribution is an acknowledgment that the church has confidence in them and in their abilities.
We welcome you regardless of race, ethnicity, age, marital status, gender identity, sexual orientation, social or economic status, physical and mental ability, or religious affiliation. All persons are of sacred worth. We are all God’s beloved children.
