We thank you for your concern and the prayers you have already been offering for the people of Texas as they experience the destruction of Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath. Please continue to pray for the first responders, those whose homes are destroyed or damaged, and those whose lives will never be the same. Also pray for the congregations on the front lines as they respond to the current needs and the needs that will be there for months and years to come.
The next best way to help is to provide financial contributions which can be used to purchase appropriate and needed items quickly and locally. You can donate directly online to UMCOR by clicking here. You can also make your donations to the church and note Hurricane Harvey in the memo and we will get your donation to UMCOR on your behalf.
The Disaster Response Warehouse in Decatur is asking for these donations:
- Box fans
- 25′ heavy-duty 14-gauge extension cords
- 2 gallon garden sprayers
- flat billed shovels
- rakes with 3″ tines
We will be collecting these items through September 9th. Please drop off completed buckets, kits, and requested items to the church before September 9th. Please do not bring or donate any items that have not been requested.
If you have any questions regarding Hurricane Harvey Disaster Response please contact Rev. Brandon Bures, Associate Pastor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
