YOU transform communities

The mission of the United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. It begins in community and at the heart of it is the local church.

The impact that local churches provide their communities for spiritual, physical and emotional needs is vital. Support for local churches is also vital to sustain the ministries. The #IGiveUMC campaign encourages funding for local United Methodist churches and the ministries they deliver.
