“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God” Matthew 5:9

Pentecost celebrates the outpouring of the Holy Spirit calling for God’s shalom. Peace with Justice witnesses to God’s demand for a faithful, just, disarmed, secure, and peaceful world.

In 1980 the United Methodist General Conference created a church-wide Peace with Justice program. Volunteer coordinators were recruited in annual conferences; and Peace with Justice ministries have sprung up throughout our churches. These programs are Shared United Methodist Ministries, and are supported by an annual special offering on the Sunday after Pentecost.
United Methodists relate to this special Sunday by seeking peaceful solutions, creating and supporting peace related ministries in their conference, and learning about peaceful, loving, and compassionate efforts around the world. Jesus clearly calls us to work for peace.

On Sunday, May 31 we will be called upon to care for every one of God’s children, especially those who have never known peace; and to aid disciples, young and old, who are indeed changing lives, and changing the world, inspired by Christ’s gospel of love and liberation.
Your Peace with Justice gifts change lives in places where the joy of knowing Christ is mixed with the tragedy of violence. Plant seeds of peace and hope by giving generously on Peace with Justice Sunday. Special envelopes are available at the Welcome desk. Your gift will make a world of difference.
