Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25:37-40
OUR MISSION FOR FEBRUARY
DANVILLE VIRGINIA RECOVERY
A request from Bishop Lewis of the Virginia Annual Conference of The UMC: I need bring to you an urgent need that I hope you will prayerfully consider. From the mid September through the middle of October 2018 our sisters and brothers in the city and county of Danville, Virginia experienced historic flooding of the Dan River and other waterways as a result of hurricane Florence and tropical storm Michael. There are 45+ homes with significant damage, most of which are homes of persons and families that were struggling with economic challenges prior to the flooding. The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) stands ready to assist with disaster recovery funds. However, we as the Virginia Conference, churches and individuals, are called to make a direct compassionate response to our sisters and brothers affected by this disaster. Please join me in making a contribution to the Virginia Conference Disaster Response Fund which will direct contributions to the crisis in Danville. Thank you for advancing God’s mission and serving others here in Virginia in this special way.
If you see a ministry you feel called to, or do not see one that interests you but you have an idea for a ministry area of interest to you, please see Pastor Williams.
