June Mission Offering – Peace with Justice

Our Mission Offering for June will be “Peace with Justice.” This offering gives the United Methodist Church a voice in advocating for peace and justice at home and around the world. Half of the offering supports grants to special programs by the United Methodist General Board of Global Ministries. The other half remains with the Wisconsin Annual Conference for peace with justice ministries.
For example:
• A grant from The Pacific Northwest Annual Conference through Seabold
United Methodist Church in Bainbridge Island, WA, helped support the
needs of members with intellectual disabilities who were part of the Island
Time Activities program.
• The Summer Arts Camp of United Methodist Church of the Redeemer, in
Temple Hills, MD, received a grant from the Baltimore-Washington Annual
Conference. In partnership with Leaders of Tomorrow Youth Center, funds
supported an experience designed to help children unleash their creative
abilities through a variety of artistic expressions including drama, music,
dance, visual arts and photography.
• In Indiana, a grant through the annual conference supports Matthew’s
Voices, a choir that offers access to, and addresses the need for the arts in,
populations in Indianapolis that often go untouched, unloved and
underserved. The ministry is hosted through Roberts Park United
Methodist Church.
Global Peace with Justice grants include:
• an East Congo roundtable to discuss equitable educational justice—
especially how to address the illiteracy that makes Pygmies vulnerable to
deception and exploitation,
• “Letting Girls Be Girls” health education programming and services for
young girls in the Rotifunk community of Sierra Leone
• an Economic Empowerment program for Gypsy women in Canon Nagar,
India.
Thank You…!
for your generosity in 2020! United Methodists gave $288,487 to the Peace
with Justice Sunday offering. Peace with Justice is a faithful expression of
shalom in the Bible. It calls the church to strengthen its capacity to advocate
publicly in communities and nations throughout the world.
