United Thank Offering Spring Ingathering

Posted April 29, 2013
Our United Thank Offering (UTO) 2013 Spring Ingathering is set for Sunday, May 12th. This is also Youth Sunday, and our young people will be serving as ushers on that day and taking up both a regular collection and this special collection.
United Thank Offering (UTO) is a ministry of the Episcopal Church for the mission of the whole church. Through United Thank Offering, men, women, and children nurture the habit of giving daily thanks to God. These prayers of thanksgiving start when we recognize and name our many daily blessings. Those who participate in UTO discover that thankfulness leads to generosity. United Thank Offering is entrusted to promote thank offerings, to receive the offerings, and to distribute the UTO monies to support mission and ministry throughout the Episcopal Church and in invited Provinces of the Anglican Communion in the developing world.
Coins and monies collected in your blue boxes are collected twice a year (in the spring and in the fall of each year). As always, thank you for your generosity and continued support of this important ministry.
