Use the following Scriptures and reflections to jumpstart sermons related to each special offering.
Make it a day for all God’s children.
“Happy are people who make peace, because they will be called God’s children.” – Matthew 5:9, CEB
How do community outreach, social justice and work with at-risk youth, all supported by today’s special offering, live out this beatitude? What additional things can we do to act as loving, caring children of God?
This Sunday United Methodists celebrate Human Relations Day by receiving a special offering. Human Relations Day calls for us to recognize the right of all God’s children to realize their potential. Your gifts allow The United Methodist Church to strengthen outreach to communities in the United States and Puerto Rico, encouraging social justice and work with at-risk youth. Please give generously! Thank you!
