Next Sunday we will have an opportunity to invest in the lives of children, and I ask you to join us in making a generous financial gift to the ministry of Epworth Children’s Home. We participate in the Annual Work Day offering because Epworth does not receive funding/apportionments through the South Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church. Instead, the conference sets aside the second Sunday in September as a day to collect an offering for Epworth.
Epworth is breaking the cycle of abuse, neglect and shame and replacing it with lives of self-respect, responsibility and productivity. This is the kind of ministry we are providing by giving to Epworth. We as you to prayerfully consider what God is calling you to share with the children of Epworth next Sunday.
