How to Give Through Special Sundays

Six times throughout the year, United Methodist congregations celebrate churchwide Special Sundays with offerings.  United Methodists contribute to a variety of educational, community development, health and social welfare programs, many of which are administrated fully or in part through the General Board of Global Ministries.   

Offerings that help support the work of Global Ministries are: Human Relations Sunday, Native American Ministries Sunday One Great Hour of Sharing, and World Communion Sunday.

Human Relations Day

Human Relations Day offerings support Community Developers, United Methodist Voluntary Service, and the Youth Offender Rehabilitation Program.
