UMC Special Sundays: 

Peace with Justice

Sunday, June 7 is Peace with Justice Sunday in the United Methodist Church. Since we cannot provide the paper envelopes we would normally share as worship bulletin inserts, we have created an online option to donate securely to this Special Sunday. We will make other Special Sunday offering opportunities available on a rolling basis throughout the year.

Click HERE to donate to the UMC Peace with Justice Sunday.

This special offering supports Peace with Justice ministries in each annual conference through annual grants and is administered by the conference's Peace with Justice coordinator via the General Board of Church and Society. 

Peace with Justice grants allow conferences to respond to needs in their communities: in Arizona, this takes the shape of a United Methodist peace ministry to unite border communities; in Pennsylvania, students educate their communities about sex trafficking; and in Liberia, people of the UMC are learning to fight human rights abuses.

One example of how connectional giving for peace and justice works locally is the Baltimore-Washington Conference's "Seeding Hope Micro-Grant" administered by the BWC Peace with Justice program, to fund work throughout our conference as UMC organizations help the most vulnerable during the COVID-19 crisis. (St. Paul's Hunger Ministry has applied for one of the mini-grants!)

Because of the Peace with Justice Sunday offering, the people of The United Methodist Church are able to make a difference together by sowing seeds—and yielding fruit!—of peace. One individual, or even one congregation, has limited resources to effect change worldwide, but when UMC congregations come together to give connectionally, we can better pursue reconciliation and peace. 

Offering Envelopes Available

Members and friends of St. Paul's who give their general offering to St. Paul's using check or cash may choose to receive customized paper offering envelopes. These come from a printing service and arrive at donors' homes, ready to use and pre-printed with the donors' name, address, envelope number, and Sunday dates (although you can use them any time).

If you would normally place checks or cash in the offering plate and now wish to mail it to St. Paul's, these customized paper envelopes might be useful to you. Email Erin Steele (stpaulsunited [at] and she will add you to the list.

Alternatively, if you receive envelopes but shifted to online giving and no longer need printed envelopes, please let us know. This can help keep clutter out of your mailbox and save the church a little money on printing and postage costs. Please email Erin (stpaulsunited [at] with your request.

One last note:  Thank you for your patience! Due to the printers' timetable and the challenges of working remotely during the COVID-19 period, there may be a two-month (or more) delay between your request and a change in your paper envelope status.

"Special Sundays" Offerings

"Special Sundays" are designated by the global United Methodist Church and enable congregations throughout our whole denomination to celebrate, commemorate, and contribute connectionally to support important causes. According to the UMC's General Council on Finance & Administration,  individual congregations may choose to celebrate Special Sundays and welcome offerings on any Sunday throughout the year that is convenient and appropriate.  Due to COVID-19, here are some of the designated Special Sundays we will be featuring in the summer months:

Native American Ministries Sunday

Contributions to this designated "Special Sunday" offering go to fund scholarships for United Methodist Native American seminarians, strengthen and develop Native American ministries and communities (both urban and rural), and support Native American outreach at the UMC's annual conference level. Founded in 1988 as "Native American Awareness Sunday," this day serves to remind United Methodists of the gifts and contributions made by Native Americans to our society, and to recognize the leaders guiding more than 20,000 Native Americans within the denomination. Although the recommended date for celebration has been the 3rd Sunday of Easter, as with all Special Sundays, individual congregations may choose to celebrate and welcome offerings on any Sunday throughout the year that is convenient and appropriate.

UMCOR Sunday

UMCOR Sunday is one of the designated “Special Sundays” established by The United Methodist Church. It was originally scheduled to be observed on March 22, but due to the COVID-19 outbreak, in-person worship services were suspended before alternative plans could be made. Special messages and offerings to support UMCOR will be featured at an upcoming worship service, date TBD. Founded in 1940 to address the destruction of World War II, UMCOR today provides humanitarian relief when war, conflict, or natural disaster disrupts life to such an extent that communities cannot recover on their own. UMCOR makes long-term commitments to working with local partners toward recovery and reconstruction far beyond the initial crisis response. UMCOR is organized into areas focused on U.S and international disaster response and recovery, sustainable development, and human migration. Read more about UMCOR (and donate any time) at

The Capital Campaign

The Capital Campaign, launched in 2016, has one goal: to raise the funds for a building renovation that will improve our church's accessibility and worship/fellowship spaces.

The feel and functionality of our church is essential to our mission and service goals. It is an extension and reflection of who we are and it is the vessel through which we fulfill our commitment and connection to Christ.

By altering and modernizing our inner walls, we can provide a more welcoming environment for visitors and our current members, shape a more accessible space for our community to gather, ensure our church is ADA compliant, and - maybe most important - provide more space for our ever-growing ministries.

Our Building Committee and Capital Campaign Committees, working together, have helped us move toward this renovation. Design professionals have drawn up architectural plans, surveys, permitting, and other necessary paperwork. All that remains is the final fund-raising effort. This project will cost around 3 million dollars, a big but achievable goal. This number is about three times our annual budget and is in line with estimates of capital campaigns for a church of our size.

Capital giving differs from annual giving in several ways:

• It invests in permanent properties

• It spreads out payments during a much longer period.

• It seeks larger amounts than annual budgets can deliver

• It requires a planned, sacrificial and inspirational effort, and occasionally involves gifting of real estate, securities, life insurance or other tangible assets. 

• It is over and above one’s regular or annual giving.
