Mini-grant supports your discipleship

A Mini-grant can support seasonal activities

The Michigan Conference is distributing Christian Education Sunday funds, to churches in the Michigan Conference, in the form of a $300 mini-grant.

COVID-19 continues to present opportunities for new and different ways of ministry.

The discipleship grant team of The Michigan Conference is pleased to offer up to 50 grants for local United Methodist Churches in Michigan. This grant is intended to support congregations as they re-imagine faith formation with children, youth, and adults. Churches who received the grant in 2020 are eligible to apply.

Each church may receive one grant of up to $300. Grants may be used for supplies, postage to send faith formation materials home, digital curriculum, Lent/Easter/Summer programming, etc., that support or enhance creative faith formation. Grants will be reviewed twice a month.

The discipleship grants are provided from the Christian Education Sunday asking from local churches in Michigan. Churches who receive a grant will be asked to share a short summary of how the grant money was used. Questions may be directed to the Rev. Kathy Pittenger.

Christian Education Sunday is designed to communicate how your church engages in faith formation. You have the opportunity to support faith formation around the conference through the Christian Education offering. Christian Education Sunday is August 22, 2021 (or another date that your church sets). Donations shared for this special Sunday support grants for local churches, training for leaders, resources, and much more.
