Dear Weddington Congregation,
As you are aware, parts of West Virginia and Louisiana have been hit by devastating floods. The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) works to assist communities in basic needs and recovery during a crisis. Because administrative cost are covered through the denomination, 100% of all funds sent through UMCOR for a relief effort go to the effort. We have sent contributions on behalf of our church to both of these areas through the Pastor’s Discretionary Fund. Some of you have asked about how you can send additional support. Many of you have family and friends in these areas.
Funds can be sent directly to UMCOR by clicking here.
If you desire to give offerings through the church during worship in addition to our ministries and missions, you can make a designation on your gift for UMCOR-LA (Louisiana) or UMCOR-WV (West Virginia).
As the church, we are reaching out to our brothers and sisters in these flooded areas in the name of and on behalf of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Thank you for being in ministry together.
Rev. Dr. Terry L. Moore
