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 mid 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: Evenglow Lodge, Sunset Home, United Methodist Village, Wesley Village, pastoral care ministries at Alton Memorial Hospital and Methodist Medical Center of Illinois; Chaddock, Lessie Bates Davis Neighborhood House, The Baby Fold and United Methodist Children’s Home  -15%

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