One of the very best things about being a part of a connectional church is that we are able to do things together that we could not do on our own. The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is one of the very best examples of this. 100% of your funds go directly to relief. If you would like to give to those affected by the devastation of Hurricane Laura – here is the link, https://www.umcmission.org/umcor/serve/us-disaster-response.
