TORNADO RESPONSE[Return to top]
The Oklahoma Conference has asked UMCOR to help the recovery process in the wake of the devastating tornado that struck Moore, Oklahoma on Monday. Given that the tornado was a mile wide, and was on the ground for over 40 minutes with 200-plus mph winds, the scope of the damage is extensive. One day earlier, Oklahoma was one of five states where 24 tornadoes struck.
Greg Forrester, executive in charge of US Disaster Response for the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), said UMCOR is ready to assist with training, funds, and consultation, once the Oklahoma Conference and local officials have had an opportunity to assess and define immediate needs.
For the moment, Norman said, the most important ways that concerned individuals and faithful United Methodists can help is through their prayers and financial assistance. "Please prepare your church membership for possible VIM [Volunteers in Mission] service later," he wrote.
Relief kits will also be needed, especially health kits and school kits. For information about how to assemble these, visit the UMCOR Relief Supplies page on the UMCOR website. Your generous support to UMCOR US Disaster Response, Advance #901670, will help rebuild lives.

Quiet Communion [Return to top]
For those who like a midweek worship service, Quiet Communion is offered on Tuesday evenings at 6:00 p.m. in the Chapel. This 30-minute service uses scripture, music, prayer, and meditation to refresh and strengthen your spirit. In the United Methodist Church, all who seek to follow God after the example of Christ are invited and encouraged to take communion, and the Quiet Communion service is an opportunity to do so on a weekly basis.
