2020 United Thank Offering Fall Ingathering

This month, United Thank Offering leaders hope that Episcopal congregations will prepare for the fall ingathering of the offering that encourages people to give thanks to God for their blessings. In 2020, the offering will support ministries across the Episcopal Church most affected by Covid-19.

“Be as creative as you want,” writes Diocese of Chicago UTO Coordinator Linda Toberman. “Maybe for Ingathering Sunday suggest everyone wear blue in support of United Thank Offering. If you can’t send a check, send me a sea of blue screen shot. I have received a picture of beautiful blue flowers. Show your blue box on screen in your Virtual Coffee hour.

“If your church is small, the UTO person might drive around and collect boxes left out on porches … or send contributions to your church treasurer and note UTO on the memo line.” People whose churches do not have a UTO coordinator can make offerings by:

  • Texting INGATHER to 41444
  • Donating online
  • Mailing a check to: UTO, DFMS – Protestant Episcopal Church US, P.O. Box 95898, St. Louis, MO 63195-8983 (checks must be received by December 21 to be applied to the Fall Ingathering
