Please remember those affected by last night’s storms. So far every indication is that this was a Level 1 disaster, meaning local officials are able to handle everything. However, be alert that there may be individual cases where victims may need some assistance with clean up and/or putting tarps on roofs.
If you know of someone needing help, contact your District Coordinator or contact me at 205-907-2657. Other states have also been affected by these storms but currently no other Annual Conferences have reached out and requested assistance. Please wait for an invitation to help other Annual Conferences.
Also, if you have not received the One Great Hour of Sharing in your congregation, now would be a great time. One Great Hour of Sharing is how the work and ministry of the United Methodist Committee on Relief is funded. None of your Conference Apportionments goes for this much needed ministry. So take the time now to support this great ministry.
In His Grace,
Disaster Response Coordinator
