Special Sunday raises up new leaders

World Communion Special Sunday is Oct. 3

October 3, 2021, is World Communion Sunday. This offering supports a diverse mix of national and international ethnic young adults to make a global impact for Christ.

Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.” 

On World Communion Sunday, Oct. 6, we will receive a special offering to support scholars in their education. Because of our giving on World Communion Sunday, the most powerful tool to change the world is in more hands.

In The United Methodist Church, World Communion is one of six Special Sunday offerings. On the first Sunday in October, our designated gifts benefit students around the world by providing scholarships, mentoring, and training.

Download this collection of resources to promote this special offering in your church on October 3 or a Sunday of your choosing. This kit has everything you need to empower your congregation to give generously. You can post some of these resources on all your social media outlets. We also have a downloadable poster and a bulletin insert you can print out and insert in your church bulletin the week prior to this special Sunday. There are materials for children and youth. Resources are available in English, French, Spanish, and Korean.

As we come together to receive Holy Communion along with Christians around the world, we recognize our unity and shared commitment to building God’s kingdom on earth. Together, we help raise up new leaders around the world, equipping them to be agents of change. Please give generously on Oct. 6.
