Prayer Booklet 2021 Call for Prayers
Every three years, the United Thank Offering assembles a small book of gratitude-related prayers, one of the most popular items we give out at each General Convention/Triennial and afterward for as long as they last. We are looking for original prayers in the following categories: Gratitude, Guidance, Healing, Love of God & Creation, Sorrow or Fear, Prayers for Morning, Prayers for Midday, Prayers for Night, and Other. I invite all who are interested to write prayers for the 2021 UTO Prayer Booklet in any language and in any format – collect, litany, free form, or prose. Please submit all prayers, including a title for the prayer, your name, and your diocese, by June 1, 2020, using this link. (Please contact Heather Melton if you have any trouble submitting the prayers to this web address.) I look forward to reading and praying all of your prayers.

2019 Grant Deadline Extended
In light of the current pandemic, all 2019 grant recipients have been notified by email that the deadline for reporting will be extended until December 1, 2020. If you received a 2019 grant and did not get the email, please let Heather Melton know so she can share the information with you.

Updates for the Database
It is that time of year again for us to check in and make sure we’ve been notified about any changes in leadership for UTO. We want to be able to thank any UTO coordinators whose term has ended and to update our database. Additionally, we are hoping to hold webinars this summer for new diocesan coordinators and new parish coordinators to make sure they have the support they need to lead UTO in their local context. We will try to schedule these webinars around the times that best work for new coordinators who respond to the survey.

To share any changes in status of leadership, please fill out the form here. If you encounter any issues or need additional help, please let Heather know. Heather will send out certificates at the end of each month.
