Human Relations Day

January 4, 2017

Sunday, January 15

This Special Sunday is a day to support the ministry of Christ among those on the margins. Thousands of United Methodist communities will come together to receive a special offering that nurtures at-risk youth, strengthens communities’ self-improvement efforts and advocates for the oppressed.
Over the years, on Human Relations Day, we have collected thousands of dollars that have gone toward making a real difference in communities across the United States. In 2015, gifts to Human Relations Day totaled $540,834. Will you help us make a difference this year?
I am looking forward to this first Special Sunday of 2017 as we live out Jesus’ words by extending a hand to “the least of these.”

In Christ’s service,

The Rev. LeKisha Reed, Executive Secretary
Networks and Constituencies
