BWC Advance Specials

Advance Specials  provide opportunities for second-mile giving that help make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world in a variety of ways. Instead of giving to non-United Methodist charities, please consider investing locally and through one of these ministries of the BWC!

To contribute to any of them, write a check to “Conference Treasurer” and mail to Baltimore-Washington Conference, 11711 E. Market Place, Fulton, MD 20759. Be sure to include the ministry’s name on the memo line of the check.

This retreat is a beacon to help us on that journey.”
