United Methodist Student Day is November 26th
On United Methodist Student Day Nov. 26, churches will come together to support students as they prepare for a life that unites faith and knowledge.
Our gifts on this Special Sunday go to scholarships for diligent United Methodist students in local congregations just like yours. Many of these young people plan to return to their churches after graduation to share their gifts, including a pastor’s son who is studying to be a church pianist, a religious studies major focused on interfaith relations, and a speech pathology student who hopes to run her church’s youth program one day.
You can read their stories and share them with your congregation to encourage generosity on Nov. 26.
To make it easy for you to prepare for this Special Sunday, use our FREE, downloadable Student Day pastor’s kit.
It has everything needed to promote this celebration including:
- Social media images
- Short, engaging videos
- Worship presentation
- Handy infographics
- Free e-books (“How to Promote United Methodist Student Day” and “15 Ways to Welcome College Students”)
Church leaders can use these resources immediately to prepare for United Methodist Student Day on Nov. 26. It’s so easy!

RESOURCES TO CONNECT WITH THE COMMUNITY:
The Appalachian District Church Vitality Team has been prayerfully seeking ways to help support you and the ministries of your local congregation during this COVID-19 pandemic. Together they have diligently researched and connected with others throughout the conference and our denomination to identify resources and offer them to you. We hope they will be helpful to you and bless you greatly in leading your churches and communities through this unprecedented time. We are very grateful to the District Vitality Team and other contributors for their great work on this resource.
This faithful team has created three documents, two of which you are receiving today. They include:
- Family Home Worship – designed to help families establish a regular worship space within their homes as well as a time where they can worship together.
- Tech Strategies – to help guide you in selecting effective tools and resources within your budget to best communicate in the digital world.
We believe these resources will be of great benefit to you. Also know that the District Vitality Team is available to answer any questions you might have in regards to the documents attached. If you have questions, you may email Rev. Howard Fleming at firstname.lastname@example.org.
