Dear Weddington Congregation,
As you are aware, parts of Texas and Louisiana have been hit by devastation from Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey. 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. 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 to UMCOR through our church Giving page by clicking here and entering the desired amount in the “Disaster Relief” box.
If you desire to make a donation through the church during worship, in addition to any gifts to the Weddington Church ministries and missions, please note in the memo line “UMCOR – Harvey.” Checks can also be mailed to the church at 13901 Providence Road, Weddington, NC 28104 or brought to the church office.
We will also be collecting items to create Hygiene and Cleaning Kits this Sunday, September 3 and Sunday, September 10 during worship hours (8:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m.) in Helms Hall and the Family Life Center on the Weddington campus, as well as at our Bonds Grove and Monroe campuses. We will also be collecting items throughout the week that can be dropped off in the church office during office hours. Click here to view a full list of requested donation items for the Cleaning Kits. Click here to view a full list of requested donation items for the Hygiene Kits.
On Monday, September 11 we will have a packing event to assemble the Cleaning and Hygiene Kits from 6:00-8:00 p.m. in the Family Life Center. *The Hurricane Packing Event scheduled for September 11 has been postponed until a later date. More information to come.*
As the church, we are reaching out to our brothers and sisters in the devastated areas of Texas and Louisiana 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
