Mark your calendar and spread the word! Beginning October 1st and throughout the entire month, there will be an important event called 10-Fold that will mobilize passionate people to stand up and be counted for causes they believe in. Each week will feature a different United Methodist ministry supported by the General Board of Global Ministries and the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR).
Here is the schedule of projects that will be featured at 10-Fold.org:
Week 1: Disaster Relief through UMCOR. This week will remind us of how the UMC is responding to disasters around the world.
Week 2: Young People in Mission. Young adult missionaries will tell their stories in exciting and challenging mission work.
Week 3: Mission Initiatives. This week will explain how we can partner with churches that are being planted in places where the UMC is new to the population.
Week 4: Missionaries. This week will concentrate on missionaries who are employed by the Church in over 60 countries.
Week 5: Fair Trade. This week will remind us how we can support just and sustainable economies by choosing to buy Fair Trade items.
Through streaming video, Tweetups, and other media, you will learn about these amazing ministries that are changing people’s lives.
