This Sunday United Methodists celebrate Peace with Justice Sunday by receiving a special offering. Your gifts empower compassionate people to advocate for human rights, buy fair-trade products, care for the environment, demonstrate for important causes, eradicate poverty, feed the hungry, mediate conflict, provide health care, seek affordable housing and model nonviolence. Global outreach through the General Board of Church and Society and annual conference related peace with justice ministries transform lives. Please give generously. Thank you!
