Lesson 12 Activities
United Methodist Student Sunday
Across the country, the people of The United Methodist Church are serving the people God loves in Jesus’ name. We’re doing it at home, but so often we’d like to do more.
  • We want to serve those in other places who are suffering.
  • We want to offer spiritual words of hope and life.
  • And we want to be well-equipped to do both!
But the reality for most of us is that our responsibilities—home, family, work—don’t allow us to engage with every need we’d like to meet.

Right now there are UMC young people—who might not have had the resources to attend a school of their choice, or, for some, any school at all—who’ve been sent by you into the world God loves because of your giving to United Methodist Student Day. When you give generously you are support these students as they prepare for a life that unites faith with knowledge.

What no one person or congregation can do alone, we’re doing together.

NEW FALL SERIES on Raven Fed: 
Exploring Spiritual Practices

Do you still feel the "back to school" excitement of starting something new in the fall? I do! In this series, we'll explore spiritual practices so you can experiment and find out what will sustain you in this season of your life. Then, we'll talk about ways to incorporate spiritual practices in your life every day. 

Other devotional videos can be found at Pastor Lisa's YouTube channel, Raven Fed. Click here to watch.

Over the course of the week, if you are in need of comfort and worship, "visit" some of the other Alaskan United Methodist churches to watch their worship services. Click here to see the list of churches offering online worship.
