UMC Congregations Mobilize for Hurricane Relief
- Perspective, a newsletter published by Good News Magazine, has published an article about local churches' efforts to support communities devasted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, and communities that are in Irma's path. We reprinted the newsletter article here.
- CSA will take a special offering on September 10 to assist our neighbors in Texas as they begin the long process of recovering after the devastating hurricane. We'll send our support via UMCOR, the United Methodist Committee on Relief. Read Rev. Sue's letter to learn how you can help, and learn more about UMCOR here.
As stewards, we are to offer our tithes to God through the church to acknowledge divine ownership over all that we are and have. We believe with the Psalmist that “The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it” (Psalm 24:1). Through our tithes and offerings we are simply returning to God a portion of what he has so generously given us. In the words of King David, “Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand” (1 Chronicles 29:14b).
