The United Methodist Church (UMC) has six Special Sunday Offerings congregations are asked to contribute to during the year. In addition, the Michigan Conference (MC) of the UMC has four Special Sunday Offerings. UUMC is offering you an opportunity to contribute to these offerings on a quarterly basis.

This quarter the featured offerings are Peace with Justice (UMC) and Christian Education (MC). The offering will be taken on June 30, 2024. Please use the envelopes in the pews and indicate which program you are supporting. Place the envelope in one of the baskets on the windowsills or give via Venmo @UUMCDonation. 

The Peace with Justice offering supports ministries at the local, national and international levels. The funds are distributed by the General Board of Church and Society and support grants for programs such as Shalom Zones where trained mediators handle a variety of disputes, often involving juveniles. The peacemakers are empowered to mediate disputes and promote cooperation through the love of Christ.

The Christian life is a journey of faith, a process of being transformed by God’s grace into the likeness of Jesus Christ. Christian Education is essential to this journey of transformation. Through Christian Education, congregations discover who God is calling them to be and what God is calling them to do. One half of the monies contributed to the Christian Education Sunday offering stay at UUMC to support our Christian Education programs and the other half supports first time Christian Education projects or training for other congregations in the MC. The offering supports education to increase our knowledge of God and the Christian faith, allowing God to transform our lives so we can help each other grow in our faith journey.
