Annual Conference Offering
Sunday, July 26 during Opening Worship
The majority of the Opening Worship offering will benefit our covenant partners, The Methodist Church of Haiti and The Liberia Annual Conference. A 10% tithe of the opening worship offering received will go to the Michigan Disaster Response and Recovery fund as recommended by Bishop David Bard. This fund allows the Michigan United Methodist Church to initiate response to disasters within the state and to begin mobilizing our response to disasters outside of Michigan.
Haiti: Haitian Artisans for Peace will receive 45% of the entire offering to support expectant mothers in HAPI's 'Start Right' program for maternal and newborn health in Haiti, saving lives from pregnancy test through birth.
Liberia: Bishop Judith Craig Children's Village in Liberia (Advance #11820A) will receive 45% of the total offering. The funds provide basic needs, education, counseling and healthcare to orphaned children. In lieu of providing materials to be shipped to these locations, we ask you to consider sending additional funds for immediate relief.
