Join us this weekend as we celebrate World Communion Sunday. The Chancel Choir will sing at both 8:30 and 11:00 services. There will be a special reading about Worldwide Communion and EVERYONE will have the opportunity to receive communion at our open table. This is one of the 6 United Methodist Special Sundays with a designated denominational offering. Funds received from this special offering support scholarships for United Methodist graduate students.

“Around the globe, countless gifted and qualified people face financial obstacles that hinder them from preparing for the vocation God has given them, especially youth and young adults. For ethnic students who will be the first generation in their families to attend college, or for those people of color who haven’t historically had access to resources that make higher education possible, the road toward education has often been unwieldy.

What would it look like if the church today imitated Jesus’ affirmation of the full dignity and God-given potential of all women and men—especially those who’ve historically been assigned to the world’s margins? On World Communion Sunday your giving helps to provide scholarships for national and international graduate students whom God has gifted to learn and to serve.”
