The United Methodist Church designates six Sundays throughout the year for special ministries. Our church has decided to use five Sundays during Lent to explain and take special collections for five of these ministries. You may either give one amount to be divided equally between these Sundays or give to each Special Sunday separately. Please indicate your intention on your check or envelope. See the Action Table in Fellowship Hall or the bulletin board in the Great Hall for more information. A special collection for UMCOR will be taken in October.
MARCH 10 HUMAN RELATIONS SUNDAY
This special collection supports neighborhood ministries through the Community Developers Program, community advocacy in the U.S. and Puerto Rico through UM Voluntary Services and work with at-risk teens through the Youth Offender Rehabilitation Program.
SECOND SUNDAY COIN COLLECTION
March 10 is also our Second Sunday coin collection with the collection going to Night Ministries Chicago. Their program supports homeless and ar-risk teens in the Chicago area.
