Pastor Dan Fahs from Oconomowoc Good Shepherd UMC writes, “I value apportionments because they reach around the world. Together we can accomplish what no single church can. I cannot hope to reach the places and people that we can reach together.

Here are three examples that are important to me:

  1. Apportionments support Africa University. This United Methodist university has students from 21-African countries and helps to develop Christian leaders for tomorrow.
  2. Apportionments support United Methodist outreach globally. We encourage Christian mission around the world by stimulating Bible study and increased spiritual commitment.
  3. Apportionments support United Methodist seminary students training to be church leaders. These funds helped make seminary financially feasible for me.

Together, our connected congregations make a difference in the lives of God’s people throughout the world. That’s why I value apportionments.”

Reminder: 2018 Apportionments are due January 14, 2019. Through December we received 73.3% of the Gross Apportionments billed to churches for 2018. Our goal for 2018 is 85%! If your church is able, please consider giving over and above the amount apportioned. Your generosity is appreciated! If you can, please send in your final giving through the Ezra website.
