Program Calendars Are Useful Leadership Resource

Nashville: The 2008 official program calendar of The United Methodist Church will be available through United Methodist Communications beginning June 22. Calendars are available in a variety of formats, including desk, wall and pocket calendars, at affordable prices.

United Methodist Communications produces this annual calendar as a leadership resource. It includes a variety of information church leaders need to keep close-at-hand, such as agency addresses and telephone numbers, notations of churchwide observances, events and Special Sundays; and a monthly planning checklist to keep users on track all year long.

The theme of the 2008 calendar is global health. A new United Methodist global health initiative seeks to raise awareness and understanding of global health issues, to engage participation and create support across the denomination for expanding health ministry, and to significantly reduce illness and mortality related to diseases of poverty such as malaria, HIV/AIDS, and tuberculosis.
