World Communion Sunday will be celebrated on Sunday, Oct 2. Remember to order your church’s free resources for this special offering. The World Communion Sunday offering provides for three areas: World Communion Scholarships, Ethnic Scholarship Program and Ethnic In-Service Training Program. This support is a lifeline for many United Methodist students. Gifts are divided as follows:

  • 50% – World Communion Scholarships (At least half must go beyond the United States)
  • 35% – Ethnic Scholarship Program
  • 15% – Ethnic In-Service Training Program

Your generous support through the World Communion Sunday offering prepares leaders for The United Methodist Church and the world.

The World Communion Scholarship, previously called The Crusade Scholars Program, made possible my seminary education,” recalls Bishop Joel Martinez. “This program is vital to our church’s future.” Martinez’s ministry and the work of countless others were made possible because of the gifts of faithful people throughout the years.
