Through this special offering approved by the Annual Conference, Rio Texas congregations will support their district’s designated hunger ministry as well as hunger-fighting projects on both sides of the Texas-Mexico border.
The 2017 Harvest Sunday offering will be distributed as follows:
- 1/3 of the total collected in each district will be returned to that district.
- 2/3 of the total remaining offering will be designated for hunger-fighting projects on both sides of the Texas-Mexico border.
The funds will be administered by the Methodist Border Friendship Commission. Participation in this offering embraces the UMC’s goals of “engaging in ministry with the poor” and “combating the diseases of poverty by improving health globally.” Specifically, the 2017 offering will help alleviate the humanitarian crisis going on right now on the southern border of our annual conference.
