Over the past two years, South Georgia has helped the North Katanga Annual Conference build and reconstruct several local churches, host empowerment training events and leadership training conferences, and train local farmers. The mission partnership that began three years ago when a team of six South Georgia United Methodists traveled to the North Katanga Annual Conference, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), continues to develop. During the 2022 Annual Conference session, South Georgia United Methodists will have the opportunity to partner with North Katanga United Methodists to support two of their ministries, Kamina Orphanage and Wings of the Morning Aviation.   We are asking each congregation to take a special offering.   There are resources for your church to put in the bulletin and videos as well: https://www.sgaumc.org/specialoffering Congregations are encouraged to send and present their offering during Annual Conference’s June 5 opening worship service.
