World Thank Offering


United Methodist Women and our foremothers have used the World Thank Offering since 1881 to give thanks to God for our blessedness and to share our love with others. As one of the five channels of giving, the World Thank Offering supports United Methodist Women-related national mission institutions and projects as well as international ministries. The November program [PDF] in the 2015-2016 United Methodist Women Program Book focuses on the World Thank Offering and offers a great way for your United Methodist Women group to share God’s love and celebrate God’s abundance in this season of Thanksgiving.

Both the Program Book and World Thank Offering boxes and labels are available at, or download boxes and labels free at At that site you can also give online. We thank God for United Methodist Women and for giving us the opportunity to meet the physical and social needs of women, children and youth around the world. May we act with courage, strength and generosity to be the blessings we are meant to be in the world.

Let your thank-yous to God be blessings for others this month as you continue our tradition of joyful giving so that all may live joyful lives. Happy Thanksgiving.
