as passionate followers of Jesus Christ
so all may experience God’s life-giving love


These are but a few of the things that our apportionment dollars helped us do as United Methodists in 2015. It happened because of the faithfulness of local congregations throughout our church who with grateful and hopeful hearts brought their gifts to the table of the work God has called us to.
