We will celebrate Peace with Justice Sunday on May 30 and the entire month of May.

When you give on Peace with Justice Sunday, your gift makes possible our critical kingdom work in the world. Because you give:

  • Methodists spearhead a peace ministry uniting Arizona border communities
  • United Methodists in Liberia are being equipped to implement the denomination’s Social Principles to address social-justice issues
  • Pennsylvania students are educating their community about sex-trafficking at home and abroad


These initiatives and hundreds of others are possible because you give.

The United Methodist Church’s special giving structure ensures your generosity blesses as many people as possible in sustainable, strategic ways. Through the support of you, and your church, we fund hundreds of projects each year. While worship platforms have changed in light of the recent crisis, we still come together to do more.

Membership in a United Methodist church connects you with the people of your local congregation and a global denomination of more than 12 million members across four continents.

The Bible is clear. Galatians 6:2, NRSV says, “Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” Jesus says it this way, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 19:19b).

When you give towards Special Sundays and The Advance you change the world one life at a time.
