Human Relations Day, January 19th (the Sunday preceding Martin Luther King, Jr. Day) is an opportunity for United Methodists to share in seeking justice for our neighbors. On this day, congregations are given the unique opportunity to join with individuals, groups, businesses, community organizations and residents to heal the wounds of social inequality.
A special offering will be received to support neighborhood ministries, community advocacy and work with at-risk youth.
Human Relations Day encourages us to be the hands and feet of Jesus and to stay on the side of those whom others choose to forget.
Specifically, your generous gifts will assist:
- Community Developers Program, related to the General Board of Global Ministries (GBGM);
- United Methodist Voluntary Services Program, GBGM; and
- Youth Offender Rehabilitation Program, General Board of Church and Society.
Special offering envelopes will be included in the Sunday bulletin.
