Mother’s Day Appeal

Order Your Mother's Day Materials

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 12th. I bring this to your attention because the Annual Conference has designated this day to take a special offering for the ministry of Epworth Children’s Home. Epworth is not an apportioned item. It relies heavily on the offerings received on Mother’s Day to provide the quality care God calls us to provide to the more than 70 children who currently call Epworth home.

Please allow your members to participate in this ministry to children and families by not only ordering and using the 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. What better way is there to support the conference initiatives to combat poverty and illiteracy than to support children who have tasted both?

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.
