Share Your Story of H.O.P.E.

To fulfill our mission as United Methodists, we must offer the hope of Jesus Christ in all aspects of life.  Discipleship Ministries uses the acronym H.O.P.E. to remind us of the core process of making disciples:

H – Hospitality
O – Offer Christ
P – Purpose
E – Engagement

How is your congregation welcoming others, leading them to commit their lives to Christ, nurturing them in the faith, and sending them into the world to serve?

How is your congregation offering HOPE?  Please e-mail your story to EOCHOPE@eocumc.com.

World Communion Sunday

Sunday, October 4 is World Communion Sunday.

Your giving on this UMC Special Sunday provides scholarships for national and international graduate students whom God has gifted to learn and to serve.
Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.”  Because the people of The United Methodist Church believe that all of God’s children have been created and gifted to build the kingdom Jesus ushered in, we’re resourcing them to do just that.
