In this video, Bishop Ward gives thanks for the offerings received during Annual Conference 2017. Because of your generosity, over $50,000 will go toward mission efforts in the conference.
Grace and peace to you in the name of Jesus Christ.
At the Annual Conference session, we celebrated God’s great generosity to us and our calling to be generous out into the world. Our cups run over. Thank you for your generous offerings. Over $50,000 was given from you so that our mission might be strong and sure.
Over $35,000 was given for the Mission Endowment of the North Carolina Annual Conference. The Mission Endowment has a corpus now of over $1,250,000 so that the first mission investment accrued from the interest on the endowment has been given for disaster response across eastern North Carolina, most especially in Robeson county where the impact was greatest.
As the Mission Endowment grows, the annual mission investment will increase. Thank you for your continued support and generosity of this important cause.
The laity offering was designated for disaster response direct assistance to those much in need.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the ways that you share so generously. God’s grace indeed flows through the North Carolina Conference of The United Methodist Church, church by church in community after community, thanks be to God.
