Advent is a season of preparation, patience and peace. During Advent, we prepare ourselves spiritually for the celebration of Christ’s birth. Advent allows us to center ourselves in the virtues of love, joy, hope and peace, demonstrated by Christ himself. We have the incredible opportunity to be vessels of Christ and further his ministry. We invite you to come alongside us this season and participate in global mission and outreach opportunities with #GiveLove, Global Ministries’ end-of-year campaign. Between November 1 and December 31, you can participate in the transformational missional work of Global Ministries.
Available now, we have ready-to-use resources to promote the campaign to your church and community. Use the prewritten emails and social media posts to introduce your circle to the campaign and share the social graphics that can inspire others to join. Maybe you need a suggested plan for the campaign; we have that too and much more! Visit ResourceUMC.org/GiveLove to find ways so that you and your community can easily make an impact this year for those who need it most.
God is calling us to share Christ’s love with our neighbors through our support of abundant health for all, disaster response and recovery, the work of missionaries around the world and evangelism and church revitalization.
The challenges are there and you are the solution!
We need your help to give love, joy, hope and peace to those who need it most … in your community, across the country and around the world.
empower missionaries around the world,
increase access to quality health care for all,
help churches create and sustain innovative ministry,
bring immediate relief to those recovering from disasters, and
send help when and where it is most needed.
Be there for those in need with your gift to Global Health today. Your gift will help Global Health continue partnering with communities, health care workers, hospitals and clinics worldwide, working through locally based initiatives to provide vulnerable people with the life-saving health care that might otherwise be beyond their reach.
When you support Global Ministries missionaries, you bring hope and dignity to people in need. Your generosity is there as missionaries treat the sick, minister in churches and refugee camps and feed the hungry, displaced and disenfranchised.
When you support the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), you help at-risk people and communities around the world transition from fear and displacement to stability and safety. You bring peace in a time of urgency.
When you give to the evangelistic initiatives of Global Ministries, you are actively participating in the growth of the body of Christ. Through church planting, development and training, Global Ministries has shared the good news of God’s love in Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America.
Your gift, joined with the gifts of others, makes a significant impact in the lives of individuals and communities. Even the smallest gift makes an impact. When you give through Global Ministries, 100% of your gift goes to serve others in the way that you choose.
Advent is a time for all believers and families to celebrate the arrival of Christ. Connect to the season by offering love, joy, hope and peace for the transformation of the world. #GiveLove
