Giving Tuesday is just hours away. On November 29, Michigan United Methodists prepare to support The Advance.
The General Board of Global Ministries has announced that November 29th, 2016 is Giving Tuesday. The spirit of giving thanks into the Advent Season will be facilitated by online giving.
On that day, as everyday, 100% of every contribution goes to the project designated by the individual or local church.
In the West Michigan Conference, the Six Lanes of the Advance contains names of missionaries, projects and agencies recommended for support by the Conference Board of Global Ministries.

The Detroit Conference Board of Global Ministries has published Spotlight Church 2017. Its pages are filled with options for connectional giving, local, regional and global. Click here for the 2017 edition.
To clarify … the Giving Tuesday promoted by the General Board of Global Ministries focuses on General Advance projects only: Lanes 1, 2, 3 and 4 in the Six Lanes and Steps 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 in Spotlight Church.
As a passionate disciple of Jesus Christ, your participation is vital to living out God’s mission through The United Methodist Church. Every day you are giving light, giving love, and giving to a world in need through your prayers, presence, gifts, and service.
On November 29 you have the opportunity to come together with thousands of United Methodists to support the work of Advance projects and missionaries.
The Advance remains committed to sustaining a strong foundation that allows projects and missionaries to build relationships and empower their ministries. In the past, we were fortunate to offer matching funds to motivate giving. This year, while matching funds will not be available, we remain confident that generous supporters will continue their commitment to vital ministry.
Thank you for your passion as we live out God’s mission together.
