Safe Communion Guidance
Often, United Methodist pastors are burdened with debt resulting from loans to complete seminary. Or worse, they are prevented from answering their call to ministry because they aren’t equipped to face what may seem an overwhelming financial obligation.
On Oct. 4, congregations across The United Methodist Church will address this concern through our World Communion Sunday special offering. Your designated gift benefits students around the world by providing scholarships, mentoring and training.
World Communion Sunday began in 1936 as a way to recognize our ecumenical oneness in Christ and to bring Christians together in a spirit of unity and peace.
As we come together to receive Holy Communion along with Christians around the world, we recognize our unity and shared commitment to building God’s kingdom on earth.
Together, we help raise up new leaders around the world, equipping them to be agents of change. Please give generously on Oct. 4.
