Welcome to the World Service Fund Resource kit.
The Connectional Giving team has created a digital Pew Card that can be downloaded and inserted in your outgoing newsletters and or printed (when the time is appropriate) to display in your congregation or at community events.
We also have assembled together some EVERGREEN resources you can use to help your congregation understand the importance of supporting the ministries throughout the denomination.
The World Service Fund is one of seven apportioned funds of The United Methodist Church and is the cornerstone for the funding of the connectional system of the United Methodist Church. The World Service Fund provides basic financial support to general agencies, which are especially important to the common vision, mission, and ministry of The United Methodist Church. Through World Service funding, agencies support annual conferences and local congregations in living out God’s mission for the worldwide Church. General agencies also provide essential services and ministries beyond the scope of individual local congregations and annual conferences through services and ministries that are highly focused, flexible, and capable of rapid response.
