United Methodist Student Day '12: Wesley Yang

Education for life. Our students, our future now.

On this United Methodist Student Day, November 25, 2012, we celebrate the education of our United Methodist students, especially First United Methodist Church students.

Rev. Paul Joseph T. Khamdy Yang shared:

“United Methodist Student Day calls the Church to support students as they prepare for life in uniting faith with knowledge.” (Par. 263.4, The Book of Discipline 2008).

United Methodist Student Day is one of the six church-wide Special Sundays of The United Methodist Church. United Methodist Student Day furnishes scholarships and loans for students attending United Methodist-related and other accredited colleges and universities.

“In 1866, a special fund was established for the advanced education of Sunday school children and the educational preparation of persons for the ministry and missionary service. The 1940 General Conference established Methodist Student Day with a church-wide offering. The 1968 Uniting Conference continued this connectional student-aid program to be funded by the United Methodist Student Day offering.”

In 2011, $451,627 was remitted. In 2010, $515,271 was remitted. In 2009, $484,188 was remitted. And, in 2008, the United Methodist Student Day offering totaled $554,252.

Support our students, our future now.
