Our prayers are with those in the path of Hurricane Harvey. Here's an update from our district office.
Hurricane Harvey hit the Gulf Coast of the U.S. August 26 affecting millions of people with multiple days of heavy rain, winds, and rising tides. The United Methodist Church is actively present, working with local and state emergency management, FEMA, and other volunteers active in disaster. The Western North Carolina Committee on Relief encourages you to:
Donate: We invite you to stand with our neighbors on the Gulf Coast during this time. Your gifts ensure that our church will be able to provide help and hope for those left homeless or otherwise affected by this disaster for years to come. Please mark your donations for Western NC teams and relief aiding in Texas and beyond "Disaster Response" and make checks payable to: Western North Carolina Conference, PO Box 18005, Charlotte NC 28218 or make checks payable to CPUMC and mark "Hurricane". Or give online at umcor.org to: UMCOR Advance 901670
Flood Buckets: We will also be completing flood buckets - by Sept. 12. Here is a link to the supplies needed for them: www.umcor.org/UMCOR/Relief-Supplies/Relief-Supply-Kits/Cleaning . You may complete one personally, as a family, or as group of friends. You may also pick up something on the list and bring to the church for us to assemble the buckets, or you may make a financial gift toward the "buckets". ... See MoreSee Less
