We cannot all be present when disaster strikes. However, on March 31st we will do our part equipping others to go.
Church of the Lakes will join thousands of others across the U.S. by participating in a Special Offering to fund the critical disaster-relief efforts of the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). For more than 75 years, UMCOR has provided disaster relief, often long after others have left the scene. UMCOR has aided refugees and confronted the crippling challenges of world hunger and poverty. However, UMCOR simply cannot do it without us.
Our gifts on UMCOR Sunday help cover the agency’s administrative costs so UMCOR can continue to guarantee that 100% of all other donations go toward specific relief projects. This allows UMCOR and The United Methodist Church to respond immediately when disaster strikes. If you would like to donate online click here, and select “UMCOR Sunday” as where you want to give to.
Please prayerfully consider how God would have you join us in cheerfully and generously showing God’s love around the world with your gifts.
