In his letter to the church at Philippi, the Apostle Paul writes, “Forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Jesus Christ” (Philippians 3:13b-14, NRSV).

As United Methodists, we will follow that mandate Sunday, Oct. 5, as we participate in World Communion Sunday. You play an important role in making World Communion Sunday extra-special this year.
