Dear CME Family, 

  Greetings in Christ! The Connectional Young Adult Ministry, of which Tiffanie Thompson is president, has produced this Devotional Guide for Lent as a ministry to the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church. I pray you will join me in receiving and appreciating their contributions to our spiritual development.

Dear CME Family,

Christian Education & Formation

Do you have an exceptional young person who is dedicated to their church, school and community? Does your youth leader go beyond the call of duty for the young people? We have created a space to honor them.

#BlackChurches4Broadband Encourages Families to Sign up for Emergency Broadband (Internet) Benefit

Our hero, the late Congressman John Lewis, said that internet access is “the civil rights issue of the 21st Century.” A high-speed home broadband (internet) connection is vital for full enfranchisement in today’s world. It opens the door to educational and economic opportunities, connects family and church communities, allows access to remote health care services, and empowers greater civic engagement and activism.

Congress recently created an Emergency Broadband Benefit giving eligible families up to $50 per month to pay for home broadband service. You may be eligible for the Emergency Broadband Benefit if your household has experienced a sudden loss of income during the pandemic, or is currently receiving federal benefits such as SNAP, Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Federal Public Housing Assistance, Veterans and Survivors Pension Benefit, Lifeline, Pell Grants, or free and reduced-price school lunches.

Visit blackchurches4broadband.org to learn more about eligibility and how to sign up.
