The Miracle Offering is gathered within United Methodist churches of North and South Dakota and delivered to annual conference session. This year's Miracle Offering will benefit our Dakotas Conference missions. The Conference Sessions Committee and the bishop determine the annual recipients.
The theme of the 2020 Annual Conference session—taking place virtually on October 10 —is “Be the Light: Live Hope!”
Jesus’ teaching about our being the salt of the earth and the light of the world (Matthew 5:13-16) serves as the principle scriptural inspiration for our conference’s theme. Jesus instructs us to “let your light shine before people, so they can see the good things you do and praise your Father in heaven.” One of the ways in which we, as United Methodists from across North and South Dakota, seek to do that is through the Miracle Offering collected as a part of our annual conference session. Since 2012, Dakotas United Methodists have opened their hearts and generously given more than $750,000 to the Miracle Offering.
The 2020 Miracle Offering provides the opportunity to be the light and living hope for those crying out for love, compassion, justice and grace in their lives.
The 2020 Miracle Offering goal is $60,000, to be shared among our signature missions in the Dakotas Conference: Bakken Oil Rush Ministry, Solar Oven Partners, Spirit Lake Ministry, Tree of Life Ministries, and Bakken Out-In-Faith Ministry.
Our Dakotas Conference mission ministries serve thousands of people each year. Begin to your hearts and minds for how you can live out God's call to generosity.
