YOU make a difference

World Communion Sunday calls the church to reach out to all people and model diversity among God’s children.

In The United Methodist Church, congregations will join together to receive a Special Sunday offering that helps students from around the world reach their full potential through scholarships, training and mentoring. Half of the dollars fund leadership development programs and scholarships for marginalized students. The other half funds scholarships and in-service training programs for racial-ethnic undergraduate students.

When you support World Communion Sunday, you support scholarships for students whom God has gifted to learn and to serve.
