As we celebrate the birth of the child who changed the world, you have the opportunity to change the lives of children in Butler County and Africa. The entire Christmas offering will be dedicated to initiatives to impact children and families:
- 50% will be used locally to launch an MLK Day of Service on January 19, 2015 to serve our neighbors and community in El Dorado and Butler County.
- 50% will be used internationally to transform the lives of the most vulnerable: children, youth, single women and the unemployed in Zimbabwe and Malawi where our Methodist partners are already at work.
Pay attention to your spending this Christmas. Whatever you spend on your family, I invite you to give an equal amount to our Christmas Eve Offering to change the lives of others in Butler County and Africa.
Donations may be brought to Candlelight Christmas Eve on December 24 at 7:00 PM or mailed to 2014 Christmas Offering; First United Methodist Church, Attn: Financial Secretary at 421 W Central Avenue; El Dorado, KS 67042
