HurricaneHarvey_FINAL-2Please join us in providing relief to the many people whose lives have been so greatly impacted by Hurricane Harvey by taking our "Flood Bag Challenge!" Pick up a brown bag - provided at our church office or during Sunday services - and start filling it with much-needed items for victims of this devastating hurricane. Once filled, drop it off here at your church and we will ensure that all bags are sent directly to Texas through UMCOR (United Methodist Committee On Relief); and into the hands of those that have lost so much. 

You may purchase as many or as little of the items as you can. Collections will be underway through September 12.

If you wish to make a monetary contribution, you may do so online at, under the red "GIVE" button located at the upper far right-hand side of the website. You may also forward a check. Please write "Hurricane Harvey" under the memo section. You can also call our Church Office at 305-445-2578 and provide your credit card information. 100% of all donations will be sent to UMCOR for immediate and ongoing assistance.

There's yet another way you can be of even further assistance to the people of Texas! “Rise Against Hunger” has just notified us that all our upcoming meal-packaging efforts will be re-directed from international needs, as originally designated, to instead serve the great humanitarian need in Texas. Please continue to pray for everyone impacted by this disaster, and provide comfort to all, via words and deeds, when and where possible.
