A day to celebrate our impact in Decatur,
across Georgia and around the world

On Palm Sunday we will celebrate our impact as United Methodists in Decatur, across Georgia and around the world as we join in God's work in the world for justice and mercy. We will take up one offering for all our global United Methodist initiatives and our local North Georgia ministries. There are brochures with more details at church and you can learn more about each ministry below.


Sunday, April 14 you will bring your offering forward to the altar as a gift to God's work in the world for justice and mercy. We encourage everyone to give on April 14, but if you can’t worship with us that day or prefer to give via credit card, you may give now. Select the agency you wish to support in the drop down menu.
