This year, in September, churches around the Greater Northwest Episcopal Area had a Special Sunday Offering to Support the Ministries of the Alaska Conference. We also know that there are “sister churches” across the denomination who may want to find a way to be in partnership with the whole Alaska Conference. Having an Alaska Conference Special Sunday offering will support the ministry of the Alaska Conference of The United Methodist Church.

The Alaska Conference comprises 28+ churches and ministries spread across more than 600,000 square miles of the Last Frontier. There are urban, rural, and remote ministry locations, each offering great opportunities for spreading the Good News. These include locations such as:

Nome, where the Nome Community Center is a lifeline for community members. Unalaska, where the “2nd Blessings Sales” recycle and reuse goods 800 miles from Anchorage. Ketchikan, where the United Methodist Church provides a Homeless Shelter and Warming Center. Fairbanks, where the church is a base for UMVIM teams building a housing community for the homeless. And Anchorage, where a new United Methodist Church plant is reaching a diverse neighborhood.
