October Communion Offering
Churches across the world are raising-up their own leaders as pastors, Christian educators and youth workers. This offering helps provide funding for graduate and special education to enhance their gifts in United Methodist outreach in our multi-cultural multi-racial world serve outside the U. S. About half of the fund is used for U. S. Ethnic scholarships and Ethnic In-Service training.
The goal of this effort is to help talented and committed persons in developing their skills to reach people for all the dimensions of the Christian life. These dimensions involve encouraging personal commitment, strengthening congregations and outreach to enhance community life.
