For 4th year, church sees record giving

If The United Methodist Church had a “Paid-in-Full” stamp, it would be getting good use around the world.

A record 28 of the 56 U.S. United Methodist conferences paid 100 percent of requested general-church giving in 2017, the denomination’s General Council on Finance and Administration reports.

That’s the highest number in the 18 years that the church has digital records and marks the fourth consecutive year that a record number of conferences reached the milestone — up from 25 in 2014, 26 in 2015 and 27 in 2016.

United Methodist Church Celebrates 50th Anniversary

Beloved in Christ Jesus:

I suspect that every year is the 50th or 100th or some number anniversary of an important event or day. We all pay attention to this kind of thing in varying degrees and often conditioned by our personal, family or group interests. The year 2018 is a real marker for a number of 50ths, and I fully expect that some of them will be featured in various ways in West Ohio.
