Mother’s Day Appeal

Request Your Mother's Day Offering Materials

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 12th. Our Annual Conference has designated Mother’s Day as a time to promote children’s ministry through Epworth and to take up a special offering for God’s work through Epworth.

 

Epworth is not an apportioned item, and it relies heavily on the offerings received on Mother’s Day and Work Day (held in September) to provide quality care to the 100-plus young people who are in Epworth’s care at any given moment.

 

Please allow your members to participate in this ministry to children and families by not only ordering and using Epworth’s complimentary promotional materials, but also by telling your congregation about the work taking place at Epworth, and by praying for the work to be strengthened and multiplied. As the pastor of your congregation, your visible passion and intentional voice in support of the ministry and the offering play a direct role in the success of the offering. In other words, if you make a sincere appeal, your people will respond. 

 

As you actively participate in promoting the annual Epworth Mother’s Day Offering, please remember all gifts received from your congregation will be counted towards your church’s minimum goal of $6.00 per member. Together we can surpass this goal and advance the ministry provided to children by your church and our conference.

 

Follow these steps and your congregation’s offering will be a success:

 

  1. Order and hang posters by Sunday, April 14th, 2024.
  2. Print the bulletin announcements on the designated Sundays.
  3. Make it a priority to add a personal note about your own support of Epworth’s children.
  4. Draw attention to the offering through announcements by allowing your LCR a ministry moment.
  5. Order and use bulletin inserts and envelopes in each bulletin on Sunday, May 12th, 2024.
  6. Take time to thank your congregation for their faithful participation by announcing the total amount raised for the ministry.

I thank you in advance for your faithfulness.

Sincerely,

Beth Williams
