When The United Methodist Church supports the education and dreams of its young people, it is actively supporting its own future. Young people hold the key to the church’s ongoing mission to make disciples to transform the world. Every year churches take a special offering for United Methodist Student Day. This offering provides scholarships for college and graduate students who participated faithfully in their church’s ministries as youth and young adults. By continuing to support young people in their education, the church is grooming the next generation of its leaders.
