Many persons have been asking how they might help in providing relief for the victims of flooding in Texas, Florida, and the Caribbean.
This is particularly critical, since our United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is a place where 100% of your contributions go to help persons in affected areas. NOT ONE PENNY goes to administrative costs. (Your conference apportionments provide all UMCOR’s administrative budget.) One more reason to be pleased to be a United Methodist.
If you would like to give directly to UMCOR, you can do so at their website (umcor.org). You may also give through Montgomery Church. Please designate “Disaster Relief” on the memo line of your check.
Please remember in your prayers those families who have been affected by flood damage and evacuation.
We are also collecting materials to build cleaning buckets and health kits. Items needed for these kits can be placed in the overflow room at Montgomery church through September 17th before being taken to the centralized conference collection site.
