Peace with Justice Sunday is one of six Special Sunday offerings in The United Methodist Church. Our gifts support ministries in the annual conference and around the world. This quadrennial we have received $694,542, making it possible to plant new seeds of peace with justice in God’s garden of creation. Thank You for your generosity in 2019. United Methodists gave $433,437 towards the ministries funded by the Peace with Justice Sunday offering. This offering supports Peace with Justice ministries in your annual conference through annual grants and is administered by your conference Peace with Justice coordinator via the General Board of Church and Society. These gifts support Peace with Justice work in the United States and around the world.
For example in Mindanao, part of the Philippines Annual Conference, a group of men is providing a sustainable source of organic, healthy foods for the surrounding community through organic agricultural practices.
In Adamawa State in northeastern Nigeria, the Peace with Justice garden looks like youth who are recovering from substance abuse. Through education and rehabilitation, youth are encouraged to lead healthier lives, while addressing underlying situations that lead to addiction.
The Peace with Justice garden in New Orleans looks like laundry services for women who are experiencing homelessness. The Amanzi Women’s Ministry at Peoples United Methodist Church offers free laundry services, opportunities for spiritual growth, coaching in simple life skills and other educational opportunities. Their children have a safe, fun place to play.
On Peace with Justice Sunday, United Methodists support programs like these. Half of the offering goes to Peace with Justice ministries in the annual conference. The remainder assists the General Board of Church and Society for its Peace with Justice efforts.
You can give to the Peace with Justice offering by sending your check to the church and mark it “Peace With Justice.” Thank you.
