Our custom at St. Andrew UMC is to present an opportunity for giving to Mission projects as we come forward to receive Holy Communion on Communion Sunday each month. Some of the Mission projects which receive funding from the monthly Communion Offerings include: United Methodist Special Sundays (Human Relations Day; One Great Hour of Sharing; Native American Ministries; Peace with Justice; World Communion Sunday; UM Student Day); The Neighborhood Center; Our St. Andrew Youth Summer Mission Trip; Community Services, Inc./Meals On Wheels; UMC of Tanzania; Our Thanksgiving Baskets Outreach Project; and, Our Angel Tree and Christmas Outreach Projects.
JUNE COMMUNION OFFERING
Our June Communion Offering is for the Peace With Justice Sunday Offering, one of the six church wide special Sundays of the United Methodist Church. See the nearby article for more information about the Peace With Justice Sunday Offering. Thank you for your generosity!
PEACE WITH JUSTICE SUNDAY OFFERING
Together, we spread the Gospel of peace and encourage cooperation locally, in the United States, and globally. The Peace With Justice Sunday Offering enables the United Methodist Church to have a voice in advocating for peace and justice through a broad spectrum of global programs. When you give to the Peace With Justice Sunday Offering, your gift makes possible our critical kingdom work in the world. Because you give, we are able to continue projects like the following: Methodists spearhead a peace ministry uniting Arizona border communities; United Methodists in Liberia are being equipped to implement the denomination’s Social Principles to address social-justice issues; Pennsylvania students are educating their community about sex-trafficking at home and abroad. These initiatives, and hundreds of other ones, are possible because you give. Through your giving, good news is proclaimed to – and experienced by – the poor. “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” (Luke 4:18-19)
