Now Through Sunday, October 9

Recent disasters have led UMCOR to send out a national request for cleaning kits (flood buckets), and the Michigan Conference is responding by coordinating a rally from now through October 9. A list of all the items needed can be found below. Please pay attention to the specific requirements. Donations of any item are welcome.  A collection box is in the hallway by Fellowship Hall. Monetary donations are also welcome. You can donate online or by check or cash. If writing a check, please indicate “UMCOR-Cleaning Kit” in the memo line. Questions? Contact Chuck Woolley.
