Human Relations Day

Human Relations Day

Human Relations Day is one of six churchwide Special Sundays with offerings of The United Methodist Church. These special offerings are earmarked and support designated ministries as a way to empower congregations to give toward causes and organizations that promote sustainable life change.

United Methodists celebrate Human Relations Day on the Sunday before the national observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. Human Relations Day encourages us to recognize the rights of all God’s children in realizing their potential as human beings in relationship with one another. This special offering benefits neighborhood ministries through Community Developers, community advocacy through United Methodist Voluntary Services and work with at-risk teens through the Youth Offender Rehabilitation Program.
