Now is the time to come together and pray. God desires for us to be faithful and call out to him in a time of need. It Says in 2 Chronicles 7:14 Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.

SEPTEMBER 2017 MISSION FOCUS
UMCOR Operating budget
September’s Mission Focus will be to support the United Methodist Committee on Relief’s operating budget by making a donation. None of the funds they collect for other mission projects through this agency (school kits, health kits, disaster response efforts, etc.) covers any of their operational costs, so 100% of the gifts they receive for mission projects goes directly to the projects themselves. And, unlike the rest of Global Ministries in the United Methodist Church, UMCOR does not receive apportionment funds to cover its administrative costs.
So, in order to keep this wonderful world-wide blessing we need to support their behind-the-scene efforts for UMCOR. Mission envelopes are located in the pew racks for your financial gifts. There will be a special Offering taking place Sept 10 for UMCOR.
