50% of donations to Peace with Justice Sunday stay in local Annual Conferences?


United Methodist Annual Conferences retain 50% of monies collected on Peace with Justice Sunday for social justice ministries within the local conference. The remaining 50% is remitted to the General Council on Finance and Administration (GCFA), whose treasurer distributes the net receipts, after promotional expenses, to the agency, General Board of Church and Society, for Peace with Justice ministries worldwide.


Peace with Justice is a faithful expression of shalom in the Bible. It calls the church to strengthen its capacity to advocate publicly in communities and nations throughout the world. It aims to make shalom visible and active in people's lives and communities by setting people free from bondage. We will celebrate Peace with Justice as witnesses to God's demand for a faithful, just, disarmed and secure world. Generally, Peace with Justice Sunday is celebrated on the second Sunday after Pentecost and a special offering is collected. The offering is administered by the General Board of Church and Society and benefits peace with justice ministries in the Annual Conferences and around the world.
