Changing the World, One Life at a Time.
Sunday, October 6, 2013
World Communion Sunday is one of the six churchwide Special Sundays of The United Methodist Church. The World Communion Sunday offering provides scholarships for U.S. (racial- and ethnic-minority) and international students. Students who receive scholarships study in a wide variety of fields: family pastoral care, Christian-Muslim relations, clinical psychology, peace and governance, crop production, law, health, rural development and more.
World Communion Sunday is a time to be in communion with Christians all over the world and to enable us to “press on toward the goal” of serving God in life-changing ministries.
World Communion Sunday is celebrated with an offering the first Sunday of October.
Local churches should forward the offering from this special Sunday to the conference treasurer’s office.
