Special Sundays

The United Methodist Church designates a number of Sundays throughout the year as opportunities for recognizing and supporting particular
ministries. These are referred to as Special Sundays and most include an offering used to fund the work of these programs. These offerings enable United Methodists like you to offer refuge in times of disaster, promote peace and justice,  provide scholarships and student loans, reach out to the community, teach skills to encourage self-sufficiency and share the love of Jesus Christ with God’s people everywhere.
