Change the World Event


 Change the World Banner_sm.jpg

What if…on one weekend all around the world, 11 million United Methodists came together to work with their local communities?  What if…as we serve people locally, we unite globally to eliminate a preventable, treatable disease that kills one child every 30 seconds?

On April 24 and 25th, your congregation is invited to participate in Change the World, an event that will reveal the many ways that faithful Christians everywhere are serving God.

Getting Started:

  1. Consider how your congregation currently impacts its community. Do you have a food pantry, a clothing closet, an ESL program, a tutoring program, etc.?
  2. Schedule an activity for an existing or new outreach ministry on either April 24 or 25, 2010.
  3.  Invite both your congregation and local community to be involved.
  4. Use the Rethink Church World Malaria Day (April 25) Sermon Starter coming soon to
  5. Collect a special offering to combat malaria.

There is one body in Christ and through the United Methodist connection; we can sense its heartbeat in a coordinated event such as Change the World. Go to for more information, or send an email to [email protected].
