Helping Those Affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma 

The church is asking for donations of supplies to assemble cleaning buckets for United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) for the clean up efforts resulting from hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

Collection is happening now and people may bring donations of supplies to the church office from 9am-1pm weekdays, Noah's Ark Preschool from 7am-6pm daily and to church on Sunday mornings. We will be collecting supplies until October 1st and on that Sunday we will gather to assemble and pray over the buckets that get created. Alternatively, you may make a monetary donation to support this effort. Please print "cleaning buckets" on the envelope. 100% of the donation will go to purchasing supplies and costs related to getting the buckets to those in need.

Below is a list of the materials needed for each bucket or you can download a list by clicking here.
