The annual conference planning team, directed by Bishop Paul Leeland, is pleased to announce that this year's missional giving recipient for the 2016 Annual Conference special offering is the AWF Disaster Response & Recovery Ministry.
This team is committed to providing the loving presence of Christ as we respond to natural disasters within our conference and across the connection. The ministry provides a framework of resources and training for the local church and district, thus strengthening response within our communities.
Many of you collect special offerings during your worship services leading up to conference. Click here to access a bulletin insert that will help explain the impact this ministry has on our conference and connection. The insert is setup so that you may print this file on a single sheet of paper, front and back, and then trim to have two inserts per page.
We invite you to give generously to this ministry that has helped thousands over the years. It’s not if, it’s when. Natural disasters will always be present and we must be ready to appropriately respond. This offering will be collected at the opening worship service on Sunday, June 12, 2016, at Frazer Memorial United Methodist Church. You may also donate online at www.awfumc.org/disasteroffering.
