October Communion Offering
Not all missionary outreach and Christian nurturing in other places come from the churches you may personally know. Churches elsewhere in the world are raising-up their own leaders as pastors and Christian educators. The World Communion offering helps fund graduate studies for ministry in the United Methodist outreach in our multi- cultural, multi-racial world. This would include theological and Christian education graduate degrees. About half of the funds are used for U.S. Ethnic Scholarship and Ethnic In-Service Training.
