United Methodist Churches Work Together to Fight Hunger

10/16/2014

Nashville, Tenn.-- Local United Methodist churches will Rethink Church and fight hunger this fall with a new effort aimed at feeding individuals and equipping communities near and far.

Congregations are encouraged to dedicate a Sunday to hunger awareness with free bulletin covers and worship slides that are available for download.

Churches with existing hunger ministries may download 15- and 30-second videos for use in worship services or social media. Customized ads are also available by emailing mediaservices@umcom.org. National advertising will occur on the Food Network through November 9.

United Methodist Communications has also provided ten tips for congregations wanting to create a hunger ministry.
