Imagine hope, love, joy and peace this Advent season with Imagine No Malaria 2014 worship resources. The downloadable materials include sermon starters, hymn suggestions and children’s messages.
The five weeks of materials are centered on the themes of “Imagine Hope,” “Imagine Peace,” “Imagine Joy, “Imagine Love,” all highlighted by the African hymn “I’ve Got The Light Of God In Me,” from the country of Cameroon. Additional materials include litanies, prayers, and a short video that can be shared in small groups or with the congregation.
Imagine No Malaria, an initiative from The United Methodist Church, is committed to ending death and suffering from malaria through prevention, communication, trained health workers and facilities, and grassroots education. To date, INM has raised 82 percent of its goal with more than $64.5 million in gifts and pledges. United Methodists across the world are working hard to reach and celebrate the initiative’s $75 million goal before the denomination’s General Conference in 2016.
The North Georgia Conference has committed to a year-long fundraising campaign from June 2014 to June 2015 and hopes for 100 percent of North Georgia Conference United Methodist churches to participate. For more on the Conference efforts, visit www.ngumc.org/imaginenomalaria.
