“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor (Luke 4:18-19).”
Churches across The United Methodist connection are invited to celebrate Peace with Justice Sunday on May 30, 2021 or any other date that is convenient for their congregation. Congregations are encouraged to contribute to the Peace with Justice Sunday offering. This is one of the six offerings that The United Methodist Church General Conference asks each local church to take. Half of the offering you give to Peace with Justice Sunday remains in the Virginia Conference to support justice ministries in our state. In 2021, gifts for Peace with Justice Sunday with be given to hundreds of initiatives in our United Methodist connection.
Here are a few that your gifts support:
- Peace ministry uniting Arizona border communities
- Equipping United Methodist in Liberia to implement The UMC Social Principles and address social justice issues
- Supporting students in Pennsylvania in educating their community about sex-trafficking.
