The United Methodist Church has been continually involved in disaster relief and clean-up efforts across the state of Alabama since the April 27th tornado outbreak.
The Tuscumbia First church family has sent over $4000 in monetary donations to UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) through our Northwest Alabama District Office. We have sent 4 trailers of supplies out to specific areas: non-perishable food, cleaning supplies and personal hygiene items to Phil Campbell; dog food to the East Franklin area; diapers, baby clothes and formula to Madison County; and paper products and personal care items to be distributed through a distribution center in Russellville. Our church members have gone out with 4 different work teams over the past 2 weekends and many individuals have worked with other groups or on their own giving their time and energy to the clean-up efforts. Our church van has transported displaced students staying in the Tuscumbia area to school in Phil Campbell.
All these efforts are just a small part of what's going on across our great state as we reach out to those who need our help at this time. WE ARE TRULY THE HANDS AND FEET OF CHRIST!
All these things we do for those less fortunate who are struggling to return some normalcy to their shattered lives. Please continue to pray for those most affected by the tornadoes, as well as for our faithful volunteers in the field. We can all help in one way or another! Thank you!
