Easter Offering

We will continue to accept your “Easter Offering” through the month of May.

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 6 special Ministries that we will support. All of them will be covered with a ONE TIME OFFERING which will be collected during the month of April.   <!–split–>

  • 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 8 agencies.

Please mark Easter on the memo line of your check, or ask the ushers for an Easter envelope.

We pray that you will give generously.

Easter Blessings, your Missions Committee
