Our neighbors include more than the people who live near us. Jesus calls us to love our neighbors across our nation and the world. His work for us on earth is to use our gifts and talents in the service of others. There is no greater calling than to love God and to love our neighbors as ourselves...no matter where they live.
If you would like to help the victims of our recent hurricanes, there are several ways you can help! Choose the one(s) that you feel called to:
1. Pray for victims, families, relief and restoration efforts, leaders making decisions.
2. Donate money. You can make a check made out to Still Waters Church with "Hurricane" in the memo, and we will send your donation to United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). UMCOR was in Texas and Florida before the hurricane hit and will continue to be there through relief and restoration efforts. 100% of your donation goes to relief efforts.
3. Help in our effort to create "hygiene kits". UMCOR has a distribution system to get hygiene kits to those who need them. See the list in the entryway or on our website of items needed for the hygiene kits. You can go buy as many of those items as you would like and bring them in. Alternatively, if you'd like to contribute to the kits but don't have time to shop, make a check out to Still Waters Church and put "hygiene kits" in the memo.
4. Help assemble the kits. We will be assembling kits as a congregation Sunday night, October 15, 6:00 p.m. here at the church. Plan to stop by and help! Please see Dawn Peters, Andrew Jones, or Pastor Lori with questions.
Volunteers in Mission provides volunteer opportunities by helping people locally, nationally, and internationally through disaster response, house building and rehab, education, and medical assistance. Through United Methodist Volunteers in Mission, every person in the church has the opportunity to serve and to live their lives more faithfully. When we reach out and use what God has given us in the service of others, we have life-transforming experiences.
