Sunday, May 26 is the designated Sunday for this year's Peace With Justice Special Offering. Ministries in Wisconsin and beyond are supported through donations received on this day; however, the Board of Church and Society encourages congregations to reschedule the Peace With Justice offering to July 21 or any other Sunday that is appropriate for your congregation, and instead, collect a special offering for UMCOR – Tornado Response. BCS will have a limited number of Peace With Justice posters and envelopes for distribution at its Annual Conference display table. This email address is being protected from spambots.
