Your prayers comfort,
Your hands rebuild,
Your donations restore hope.
All donations go directly to relief efforts.
Where people suffer, Christ is and so shall our prayer and presence be.
The Louisiana Conference of The UMC is dealing with the cumulative effect of recent natural disasters. As damage assessment and prioritizing continue, they mobilize to help the disaster survivors. They coordinate deploying volunteers to recovery zones, provide Early Response Team (ERT) training, and help assistance programs reach the people in greater needs. The church leaders said, “The best way to help right now is to send financial contributions.”
The First UMC in Flushing, NY helps flood-damaged neighbors despite the flood damage in the church building. Among them are single-mother immigrant families living in their basement uninsured rental units and now in danger of being evicted. Many of the low-income families are devastated as they feel they have lost everything.
As Afghan people are entering Fort McCoy, efforts are being coordinated in the Wisconsin United Methodist connection to offer support and care for them. Please consider donating items, found on the lists here.
Please consider making a monetary donation to our church for the flood survivors in Louisiana and New York.
Bring requested items for Afghan refugees to the church no later than Sunday, September 26.
