United Thank Offering

United Thank Offering

opentablescreengrabThis is the time of year when we give thanks for all the blessings of our lives — a warm home, food on our tables, and clothes to wear.  As you gather together with friends and families, please remember that your daily blessings lead to developing a habit of generosity and thanksgiving.

The United Thank Offering is a ministry of the Episcopal Church for the mission of the whole church.  Your monies that are collected in your “little blue Box” are distributed through grants which in turn increases gratitude and generosity.  Your collected monies may be sent directly to the United Thank Offering office in St. Louis or to the Diocese of Oregon.  Please remember to mention “Diocese of Oregon” in your memo line when sending monies to St. Louis.  The address follows:

United Thank Offering
DFMS – Protestant Episcopal Church US
P.O. Box 958983
St. Louis, MO 63195-8983

Information for the next grant cycle will be available December 1st.  Visit www.episcopalchurch.org/uto or www.uto2014.wordpress.com for application materials.

Please contact me if you would like to schedule a visit to your congregation to speak about the ministry of United Thank Offering.  Materials and videos are also available on the websites listed above.

In Peace,
