  • UMCOR HARVEY

    If you're anxious to support relief efforts in South Texas after the devastating hurricane, the best way to contribute is through UMCOR Advance #901670, our connectional giving resource for The United Methodist Church. Every penny donated directly benefits local residents. If you prefer a hands-on approach, assemble flood buckets. Please keep all those affected, including first responders, in your prayers. 

    As South Texas residents and emergency response teams (ERTs) continue relief efforts after Hurricane Harvey, our prayers are with those in the path of Hurricane Irma, now a Category 5 storm. Flood buckets are desperately needed and can be assembled very quickly and easily. Financial contributions should be made to UMCOR Advance #901670. 

    If you would like to become an Emergency Response Team (ERT) member, contact Nicole Hutchison at 817-807-0979 or nicole.m.hutchison@gmail.com. The next training is Saturday, October 14 (9am-5pm) at Acton UMC in Granbury. Registration ends October 9.
