Human Relations Day

by | Jan 2, 2018 | North District Web Page, North District Newsletter

Are you ready to celebrate Human Relations Day on Jan. 14?

Human Relations Day is our day to support those living in the margins of society.

All monies collected during the special Human Relations Day offering will be funneled to our United Methodist Community Development Program (57%), the United Methodist Voluntary Services Program (33%) and the Youth Offender Rehabilitation Program (10%).

Our offering makes a real difference.

It makes a real difference to people like Robin. After spending three years in jail for drug trafficking, she had a distorted image of God. Could he even love her after everything she had done?

You know He did love her — and He showed up for her in a big way through the work of Exodus House.

Exodus House provides transitional housing to formerly incarcerated individuals with alcohol and drug addictions, and with it a new picture of the love of Christ.

Today, Robin is addiction free and helps other women find recovery.

Today, she shows the powerful and transformative love of Christ to everyone to whom she ministers.

She does this through her work with Exodus House.

This ministry is just one of the many we support and empower when we give on Human Relations Day.

Our support on Human Relations Day encourages ordinary people to change the world.

Isn’t that exciting?

I hope you and your congregation will be joining us on this Special Sunday.

God bless,
