“Give Light, Give Love, Give Life”
On Nov. 29, United Methodists will come together to support the work of General Board of Global Ministries’ missionaries and projects on UMC #GivingTuesday. In 2015, more than 770 missionaries and projects received 8,757 gifts through The Advance, the denomination’s designated giving channel.
The Advance is the official channel for voluntary, designated, second-mile giving of The United Methodist Church. Through The Advance, annual conferences, districts, local churches and organizations, as well as individuals and families, may choose to support mission programs or mission personnel with their financial gifts. One hundred percent of each gift goes as designated. Global Ministries’ staff have vetted and approved each Advance project.
“Give Light, Give Love, Give Life” is the theme for UMC #GivingTuesday 2016. This year, consider supporting a project that inspires your spiritual passion. Go to https://www.umcmission.org/give to learn about projects and to donate.
Gifts made through The Advance make a tangible difference in the lives of those served. More information and resources are available at www.umcgivingtuesday.org.
