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 Special 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.
