Churchwide Special Sundays
Never before has it been so important to give to the six churchwide Special Sundays with offerings. Giving to Special Sundays prepares students to become leaders for the church and the world; empower the poor and victimized to live fuller lives through self-improvement programs; advocate and challenge injustice and pays administrative cost for disaster relief. You can change the world one life at a time.
Human Relations Day calls United Methodists to recognize the right of all God’s children to realize their potential. The special offering benefits Community Developers, United Methodist Voluntary Services and Youth Offender Rehabilitation programs.
Native American Ministries Sunday reminds United Methodists of the contributions made by Native Americans to our society. The special offering benefits Native American outreach within annual conferences and across the United States and provides seminary scholarships for Native Americans.
One Great Hour of Sharing calls United Methodists to share the goodness of life with those who hurt. The offering provides administrative support for the United Methodist Committee on Relief as it responds to disaster survivors and people in need around the world. Because One Great Hour of Sharing provides for UMCOR’s operational expenses, when you give to a specific UMCOR disaster advance, 100% of your gift goes to help the survivors of that disaster.
Peace With Justice Sunday offerings benefits peace-related ministries in annual conferences and through the Board of Church and Society
United Methodist Student Day Sunday calls the church to support students as they prepare for life in uniting faith with knowledge. The offering provides scholarships and student loans for qualified United Methodist applicants.
World Communion Sunday calls the church to reach out to all people and model diversity among God’s children. The offering benefits World Communion Scholarships, the Ethnic Scholarship Program and the Ethnic In-Service Training Program.
Volunteers in Mission Awareness Day offerings help provide resources for volunteers and connects them to projects throughout the world.
