In Arizona border towns, communities facing social challenges are dramatically divided. In Liberian villages, citizens’ human rights are being violated. In local U.S. communities, women and girls are being bought and sold against their will. Moved by Christ’s love to pursue reconciliation and peace, honoring the dignity of every individual made in God’s image, The United Methodist Church is unwilling to turn a blind eye to injustice.
Although you, and possibly even our congregation, may lack the resources alone to effect change in a broken world, your giving is vital for the UMC to continue its global ministries of reconciliation. Because of the Peace with Justice Sunday offering, the people of The United Methodist Church are able to make a difference together by sowing seeds—and yielding fruit!—of peace.
Peace with Justice Sunday offerings funded:
- Methodists spearheading a peace ministry uniting Arizona border communities
- United Methodists in Liberia being equipped to implement the denomination’s Social Principles to address social-justice issues
- Pennsylvania students educating their community about sex-trafficking at home and abroad.
These initiatives, and hundreds of others, are possible because you give. Your giving makes possible the proclamation of Christ’s peace. Will you continue to support Peace with Justice Sunday? Will you empower local Christians—in Pennsylvania and Arizona and Liberia—to build the kingdom of peace that Jesus ushered in? Special envelopes will be in the bulletins on May 27th, or mark your gift accordingly; you may also select Peace with Justice on Easy Tithe.
