Fall Deadline Extended to October 1, 2017

“Living together on this planet, we have realized that the many threads that connect both fragile and solid foundations of human life and of God’s whole creation are endangered…We must renew our call for social transformation, for the quest to open the doors of opportunity for all, to distribute resources more equitably, and to provide better care for persons in need.”
— The Book of Resolutions of The United Methodist Church 2004, pg. 826- 827

The work of ending hunger, racial intolerance, economic and environmental injustice, along with several other social justice issues, continues to be the work of The United Methodist Church. It is the life transforming work of moving from despair to hope, from brokenness to reconciliation. If your programs and ministries are dedicated to this important work for shalom in God’s kingdom on earth, the North Texas Board of Church and Society would like to help.

Every year there is a Peace With Justice Sunday. One of six special offerings Sundays in The United Methodist Church, half of the Peace with Justice offerings collected is remitted to the General Council on Finance and Administration for the General Board of Church and Society, and the other half remains in the Annual Conference. The Conference portion is administered by the Conference Board of Church and Society.

Through the past several years, many United Methodist projects (or ecumenical activities which include United Methodists), have received small grants that further the work of reducing and eliminating the disproportionate effects of injustice in our communities.
