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 THE MONTH SEPTEMBER: UMCOR-Hawaii/Maui
UMCOR-Hawaii/Maui Relief Efforts. As of an August 14 update, UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) is coordinating with the California-Pacific Annual Conference to process an initial grant for emergency supplies such as shelf-stable food, water, hygiene items and tools to help survivors recover belongings as first responders continue to provide initial aid in the area. UMCOR is the humanitarian relief and development arm of The United Methodist Church, which provides humanitarian relief and disaster response in the United States and internationally. Their efforts are targeted in places where natural disasters, war, or conflict have done so much damage that communities are unable to recover on their own. 100% of the money given to UMCOR goes towards helping those in need. If you would like to donate to this mission, please place your check or offering envelope in the offering plate with “September Mission” in the memo line.
