Bishop Bill McAlilly:For 35 years, faithful United Methodists across
the Memphis Conference have given sacrificially to the Lenten Hunger Offering.
It is phenomenal what we can do together for the cause of Christ. This is one of the hallmarks of our connection – that together we are better and can do more to address the needs of the world through our giving. It is my prayer that every congregation
in the Memphis Conference make a gift to the Lenten Hunger Offering.
Your gifts matter and will make a difference.”
