Take the Change the World Challenge

New Year’s resolutions may have come and gone, but the goals set for our local churches should be attainable through the strength of the United Methodist Connections!

United Methodist Communications (UMCom) is the communications agency of the global denomination – an arm of the church that maximizes and strengthens connectionalism within The United Methodist Church. We are here to help local churches achieve their goals by shining a light on how God is at work in your community. This light helps communities see your work, and want to join in. Here’s one way we can assist in 2014.

Change the World is a denomination-wide event that focuses on the ministries of the church beyond the sanctuary during one particular weekend, so that change is palpable and noticeable. Just imagine, if every United Methodist church in your surrounding area were outside the walls of their buildings helping one another and enacting social change, people would take notice.

When you let us know about your outbound missions, we place your event on your Find-A-Church profile, giving access to over 200,000 visitors a month. And, we will supply you with resources to highlight your ministries during Change the World weekend, May 17-18, 2014.

So…are you ready to take the Change the World Challenge?

  1. Identify the outreach missions you’d like to highlight in your church and it’s surrounding community during May 17-18, 2014. Set an achievable goal for expanding the number of people serving and being served through the mission.
  2. Begin planning an event to highlight your mission opportunities on the weekend of May 17-18, 2014.
  3. If you are planning something and are ready to show it to the world, register here.

You will get a Change the World package that includes a re-useable lawn banner, a sermon series, a t-shirt and a pair of work gloves.
