Missions Giving

It’s not too late to contribute to the annual “Easter Offering.”  Part of the Easter tradition at Bethel Wesley United Methodist Church is to share our blessings with others. The Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church has suggested six special Ministries that we will support. All of them will be covered with a ONE TIME OFFERING which will be collected through early May. <!–split–>

Following are our 6 special ministries:

  • One Great Hour of Sharing (UMCOR) 20%
  • Human Relations Day (community development programs in low income areas) 9%
  • Native American Ministries (recognizes and supports the contributions of Native Americans to the Church) 9%
  • World Communion (helps support education and training of Church Leadership) 9%
  • Peace and Justice Sunday (aids disciples who are changing lives and the world) 9% United Methodist Student Day (helps students to continue education) 9%

In addition, the Mission Committee has selected two other agencies to support:

  • Churches of the Quad Cities Food Pantries 20%
  • Golden Cross Agencies of IGRC (Baby Fold, Chaddock, United Methodist Children’s Home, etc.) 15%

Remember that your contribution is a one-time gift for this year that will support all eight agencies. Please mark “Easter” on the memo line of your check. We pray that you will give generously.

Update from Trinity Medical Center

GOOD NEWS! Hospitalized patients may now request a visit from their pastor and parish nurse. The catch is the patient MUST ask their floor nurse to call down the name of the pastor/parish nurse to the screening desk so they are aware of who will be coming to see that person. <!–split–>

We have been waiting for almost a year to be able to visit and pray with you when you are in the hospital for illness or procedures. We welcome this opportunity to do so again but there are still some hoops to jump through. If you should have to become a patient in the hospital and would like a visit from one of us, please tell your nurse that is taking care of you and she/he will take care of the rest.  Blessings, Kara Ade, Parish Nurse
