YOUR gift offers education
In The United Methodist Church, congregations receive a World Communion Sunday offering that helps students globally reach their full potential through scholarships, training and mentoring. Half of the dollars fund leadership development and scholarships for marginalized students; the other half funds scholarships and in-service training for racial-ethnic undergraduate students.
