GBHEM Extends Thanks to Cal-Nev
The directors and staff of the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry have sent a message to the California-Nevada Annual Conference, "to express our sincere appreciation and gratitude for your . . . support of the 2008 apportioned funds."
"During these tough times when many conferences and local churches are struggling," the message continues, "we want the churches of your conference to know that your financial commitment to the general church will have a significant impact on available funding for denominational ministry and mission.
"We are strengthened and humbled by your support of the important education and leadership programs and initiatives made possible through the United Methodist connection, such as the Ministerial Education Fund, the Black College Fund, the Africa University Fund, and the special Sundays with offerings."
GBHEM has prepared a thank-you "ad" which churches may download and print for use in Sunday bulletins. Click here to download:
