Change The World on May 19-20

On May 19–20, United Methodists will unite community-by community around the world in a grassroots movement to encourage all people to perform simpla projects in their community to improve lives and change the world.

This event teams Rethink Church with the Imagine No Malaria project to make a huge impact in th world. This takes your everyday service work and gives it even more meaning as the power of the UMC connection unites our efforts around the globe to enact the words of Jesus when he said, “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

What’s great about the way they are putting this together is that each site is registering their projects which can then be viewable on a map…really cool!

If that’s not great enough, they can make you look really good by having a (FREE!) small group curriculum that goes along with the event. You can get all you need from their site and register your group so that you can be part of making a differnce and changing the world on May 19–20.
