Children’s Bible Sunday

2024 Bishop’s Offering

In 2022, over 13 million children in the U.S. faced hunger, including 660,000 in Florida, where one in five children live in food-insecure households.

 

The local United Methodist churches are actively working to address this issue. To support these efforts, the Florida Conference is launching a grant program to help churches provide food to children and start new ministries addressing food insecurity.

 

To give, please indicate Bishop’s Offering on your check/envelope or choose “Bishop’s Offering” from the online giving page.



Membership Orientation Opportunities: June 4 or 27

Interested in becoming a member of Clearview? Want to know more about the church and United Methodism? Come to one of our upcoming Membership Orientations on Tuesday, June 4, or Thursday, June 27, from 6:30 to 8 pm in the Care & Share Room. Pastor Erick will share about Clearview and the United Methodist Church and answer any questions you may have. Attendance at the orientation is required to join.

 

Snacks will be served, and childcare will be available by reservation. Sign up using the clipboard at the front of the sanctuary, online at clearviewumc.org/signup, or by contacting the Church Office. After the orientation, you will have the option to join the church during worship on June 30.
