PRAYER – Please keep all of the people affected by this storm in your prayers.
 

FLOOD BUCKETS: We are all to familiar with these. If you make them we can collect them at the Church and we will get them where they need to go. They will need these for months to come. LEARN MORE

Interfaith has been serving our visiting neighbors from Louisiana and East Texas who have evacuated from Hurricane Laura. Many will be in our area for the next 3-4 weeks as they have been told their areas will not have basic necessities of running water or electricity for several weeks.

From The Texas Annual Conference:

For the past two years we have been developing a disaster preparedness plan to help congregations respond more effectively during a disaster. We call this robust program Texas Congregational Disaster Readiness (TXCDR), the culmination of a collaborative effort of Hope Disaster Recovery, SHUR, Katy Responds, The Restoration Team, 4B Disaster Response, key agencies, and numerous denominations. It includes the essential functions needed for an effective disaster response, including planning, preparation, training, communication, and coordinated response.

 

visit the web site at TXCDR.org for more information, and take the first step by joining and register to participate with TXCDR!

When disasters happen, it is local churches that provide the first response to their communities. This basic understanding – that disaster response is local – forms the foundation for UMCOR’s U.S. disaster training and response efforts.

When responding to a disaster in the United States, UMCOR works with the conference disaster response ministries to provide the following:

 

*Financial assistance – emergency grants may be sent when a bishop of the affected conference contacts UMCOR;

*Expertise – UMCOR’s disaster-response experience and knowledge are made available to those in need;

*Networking – connections with volunteers, experts, local government and other organizations can help communities recover from disaster
