Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month Sept 15-Oct 15

September 17, 2018

Blessed as we are with diversity in the California-Nevada Annual Conference, it’s especially appropriate that we celebrate the rich cultural contributions of our Hispanic/Latino members during Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept 15-Oct 15).
Although certainly a time when many Hispanic/Latino people remember their traditions and acclaim their families’ countries of origin and their independences, this special month is also a time for congregations that are predominantly of other ethnicities to enrich their ministries as they interact with people whose culture (and, perhaps, language) is different from theirs.
How can your church commemorate it? United Methodist Communications has five great suggestions!
