Rio Texas Conference
Harvest Sunday 2018

Sunday – November 4th, 2018
Or any Sunday that is convenient for the local church

Through this special offering approved by the Annual Conference, Rio Texas Conference congregations will support their district’s designated hunger ministry as well as hunger-fighting projects on both sides of the Texas-Mexico border within the bounds of the annual conference. 

The 2018 Harvest Sunday offering will be divided as follows:

  • 1/3 of the total collected in each district will be designated for hunger-fighting projects on both sides of the Texas-Mexico border within the bounds of the annual conference. The funds will be administered by the Methodist Border Friendship Commission. http://www.umcmission.org/Give-to-Mission/Search-for-Projects/Projects/10759O

  • 2/3 of the total collected in each district will be returned to that district for hunger ministries there.

Participation in this offering embraces the UMC’s goals of “engaging in ministry with the poor” and “combating the diseases of poverty by improving health globally.” Specifically, the 2018 offering will help alleviate the humanitarian crisis going on right now on the southern border of our annual conference.
