There is no actual offering plate at a virtual annual conference. However, Michigan United Methodists are invited to make contributions that will support our covenant partners in Haiti and Liberia.
Churches and members of the 2020 Virtual Michigan Annual Conference supported the yearly mission ingathering at record-breaking levels. The gifts totaled $62,355. Ministries in Haiti, Liberia, and mid-Michigan are grateful.
Haitian Assets for Peace International, the Bishop Judith Craig Children’s Village, and Michigan Disaster Response are the 2020 recipients of Annual Conference giving.
