United Methodist Day at the General Assembly

Thursday, February 4, 2016


All are invited to United Methodist Day 2016 at the General Assembly! This is an opportunity to help faith communities become empowered to serve as missionaries of justice, as well as the more traditional missionaries of mercy.United Methodist Day and other avenues of faithful advocacy help us to look beyond mercy ministry to ask: “What caused this problem? What causes hunger? Global warming?” By joining together and establishing relationships with our elected officials, we empower members of our congregations to wonder, “How can I make a difference? How can I be a Good Samaritan in our world to its fullest sense?”This event gives congregations a vehicle for reaching beyond themselves and introduces them to the Social Principles of The United Methodist Church in a meaningful way.
