Use the following Scriptures and reflections to jumpstart your sermon on United Methodist Student Day.
Prepare students to unite faith with knowledge.
“Therefore, once you have your minds ready for action and you are thinking clearly, place your hope completely on the grace that will be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed.” – 1 Peter 1:13, CEB
Today’s special offering feeds students in body, mind and spirit so they can strive for academic excellence. When we share financial gifts for scholarships, we show students the church cares about them and we join them on their faith journey. What an awesome task!
This Sunday United Methodists celebrate United Methodist Student Day by receiving a special offering. Your gifts help United Methodist students to meet the rising costs of a college education. Recipients of scholarships attend United Methodist and other accredited colleges and universities. Students in our own annual conference – and perhaps even our congregation – benefit from this offering. Please give generously. Thank you!
