"Bridges To Mission" Offering

[Jesus] said to them, ‘Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation’(Mark 16:15)

Many of you are aware that each year our Bishop of North Georgia United Methodism (Michael Watson) designates an annual “Bishop’s Mission Offering” to be collected by North Georgia United Methodist churches in the weeks leading up to Annual Conference, and then shared by each church’s delegates at a worship service during Conference.

This year, Bishop Watson has announced that our 2013 Annual Conference Bishop’s Mission Offering will support our North Georgia Conference “Bridges” mission partnerships in El Salvador, The Bahamas, Russia, the Philippines, Kenya, and Portugal.  The greatest need for these six international mission partners is for assistance in leadership training, and your gifts will go towards helping bring training to the “next level” for these mission partners. For a video from our Bishop, and to find out more information about our “Bridges of Mission” projects, CLICK HERE

So, I invite you to join me in participating in this special opportunity with an over-and-above-your-regular offering financial gift. To contribute, please make your check payable to East Cobb UMC and designate either it or cash to our “Bishop’s Mission Offering.” 

We’ll be collecting funds through June 9th, and will present our church’s combined check during the offering time at the Annual Conference afternoon worship service on Wednesday, June 12th.  Please join me as we seek to connect with mission needs worldwide through this “Bridges of Mission”  offering. 

Remember that God loves you and I do, too!
