February is Love St. Jude Month  in the CME Church

Dear CME Members,

 The College of Bishops voted to designate February as our "Love St. Jude Month".  All local CME churches are asked to take up a special offering (or use their benevolent offering one Sunday in the month) for the St. Jude Hospital in Memphis, TN.

 The St. Jude Hospital serves a significant number of African-American patients - children who are battling illnesses like cancer. The hospital does not charge families anything for this medical care, so donations are critical to keep the work going. In July 2016, at the Connectional Youth and Young Adult Conference, the CME Church presented its first gift to St. Jude in the form of a $25,000 check.  We want to make an annual gift to this tremendous ministry of care!
Please make checks payable to the "Department of Finance" and mail them to your presiding bishop no later than February 28, 2017. Put "St. Jude" in the memo line.  

Let's show our "LOVE" for the children served by St. Jude with our generous gifts!

Bishop Teresa Snorton-Jefferson, Secretary of the College of Bishops 
Senior Bishop Lawrence Reddick
