The celebration of World Communion Sunday is October 1st. On this Special Sunday of The United Methodist Church, not only do we celebrate our unity in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, but we also come together as United Methodists to lift up underserved students with a special offering. Our gifts help provide scholarships for racial and ethnic minority students, removing the financial obstacles for young men and women for whom education is difficult, if not impossible to access. Through our connectional giving, many first-generation students will be able to attend college. Remember to share this good news with your congregation and celebrate with on Oct. 1.
