Each year, all churches in the Kentucky Conference are invited to participate in a mission offering at Annual Conference. The Mission Offering for 2019 Annual Conference will support Missional Faith Communities in the conference who on their own are unlikely ever to have congregations able to financially sustain themselves.They are: Grace Kids: A Church for Children in Louisville, Encounter Mission in Paintsville and a third to be named.
Sunday, May 19th, is the suggested 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.
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.
