World Communion Sunday

        World Communion Sunday, held annually on the first Sunday of October, is one of the six special Sundays on which United Methodist Christians are called to give generously for various programs in God’s world. Donations on this particular Sunday are used in the World Communion Scholarship Program.
        This program supports students in their advanced studies (master’s or doctoral) preparing them for leadership involvement in church and society and for their future work with communities in need. The program seeks to support students whose study focus will directly relate to mission and to the following priority areas of emphasis: elimination of poverty, expansion of global health, leadership development, or congregational development.
        The program supports students from outside the U.S. (World Communion International Scholarship) or from communities of color from within the U.S. (World Communion National Scholarship).

        Thank you for your generous donations to this worthwhile ministry.
