By Billie K. Fidlin, Director of Outreach & Justice
This year our Bishop has blessed the Conference with wonderful opportunities to share our faith in action through the Annual Conference offerings. Churches are asked to open the opportunity to their entire congregations as soon as possible. It is in this way that we can include our entire United Methodist family in making an enormous impact for the four offerings that have been chosen: homeless youth and young people; our church in Huachuca City and the devastating fire that occurred there; our response to those legally seeking asylum in our country; and United States disaster response efforts through UMCOR.
Last year some churches publicized this opportunity through to the opening of the Annual Conference and took one local church offering in June. Other churches offered their constituency a special offering for each effort. Still, other churches had an ongoing offering from the Spring up to the Annual Conference.
As you become aware of your total local church offering, please let Director of Outreach & Justice, Billie Fidlin, ( ) know your total so that we can add that to the offerings taken during Annual Conference. We know the generosity of our churches will help so many of God’s creation in so many ways. We celebrate the generosity and spirit of the Desert Southwest Conference!
