Each year, all churches in the Kentucky Conference are invited to participate in a mission offering at Annual Conference. The 2019 Annual Conference Mission Offering will support new missional communities that have unique ministries in our Conference. These communities are Grace Kids: A Church for Children, in Louisville; Encounter Missions, in Paintsville; and a Fund for emerging refugee communities in numerous areas of our state. All proceeds will go directly toward the development of ministries to transform the church, communities and the world!
Sunday, May 19, is the designated date for collection of this year’s offering. If that date is not convenient for your church, please collect the offering at a more conducive time. Each congregation is asked to send its offering to Annual Conference with the church’s lay member. Checks should be made payable to the Kentucky Conference Treasurer.
With your mission offering, you are helping missional faith communities make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world across Kentucky. You are inviting others to be part of God’s story and to understand God’s love for them. In short, you are making a difference!
Bishop Fairley and the extended cabinet challenge all Kentucky United Methodists to give generously to this year’s Annual Conference Mission Offering. To support this challenge, Bishop Fairley and the members of the extended cabinet have agreed to contribute personally to the Mission Offering. As a group, they have committed to give at least $20,000.
