This Sunday, March 31, the HUMC worship community will be asked to commit to giving to the Miracles Everywhere Campaign through the Greater New Jersey UMC. Here’s the wonderful ministries that the campaign supports:
Puerto Rico: The Miracle of Relief – The UMC in Greater New Jersey is on a mission to bring relief and rebuilding to the people of Puerto Rico where thousands are hurting and trying to pick up the pieces of their lives in the aftermath of hurricane devastation. We’re stepping up and giving back by raising $500,000 to send mission teams and equip those on the ground with resources to rebuild.
Investing in The Next Generation – By raising $3 million, Next Generation Ministries will grow the faith of 1,000 students in camping experiences, 2,000 more young people by strengthening United Methodist youth ministries in Greater New Jersey and 5,000 middle and high school students at the annual IGNITE youth conference. Your support is bringing youth to Christ, forging priceless, life-altering experiences, changing lives and building the future leaders of the church.
Miracles on Campus – Next Generation Ministries is raising funds to grow the faith of 1,000 college students in 10 new college campus ministries. New Jersey is home to 380,000 college students who attend 59 colleges and universities. Nearly 235,000 of those students are on a campus within five miles of a United Methodist congregation.
Hope Centers – GNJ is at work spreading hope across the entire region. Through the Miracles Everywhere Campaign, A Future With Hope is building on its success from restoring homes and lives in the wake of Superstorm Sandy and helping communities find hope through the development of 100 Hope Centers that will provide affordable housing, job training and social services for children and youth. $1,000,000 is being raised to provide a future with hope for communities all across GNJ.
Tanzania: Building the Church – By partnering with United Methodist communities in Tanzania, we’re helping forge new disciples of Christ by raising $500,000 to start an annual pastors school that equips leaders to make disciples and spread God’s love. Additionally, funds will provide for the launch of new congregations, support clergy salaries and construct a Hope Center with a health clinic and mission hosting facility.
It’s your turn. Be the miracle. Join the Miracles Everywhere Campaign. Find out more in service at 10 a.m. on Sunday!
