United Methodist Committee on Relief

As the humanitarian relief and development arm of The United Methodist Church, UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) responds to natural or civil disasters of such magnitude that they overwhelm a community’s ability to recover on its own. Through UMCOR, United Methodists extend loving care to people throughout the world.

When disaster strikes, it is local churches that provide the first response to their communities. This basic understanding—that disaster response is local—forms the foundation for UMCOR’s US disaster training and response. When responding to a disaster in the United States, UMCOR provides training, financial assistance, expertise, community collaboration to churches and partners making them more resilient to disasters.

Hurricane Ian made landfall in Florida on September 28 which caused severe flooding and power outages.  In order to help those affected by the hurricane, the Missouri Annual Conference Disaster Response Office has requested congregations to focus on the following mission and service efforts:

  • PRAY
    Pray for the people of affected areas and first responders and agencies managing damage assessment. include those affected by the storm’s path in your prayers during worship.
    Visit Missouri Annual Conference’s communication platforms to be informed of immediate needs.
  • GIVE
    By making an above and beyond donation to UMCOR, this provides financial assistance to those directly affected by the Hurricane in Florida.

One hundred percent of all UMCOR contributions go to the designated cause.

In God We Trust

Throughout the centuries, “trust in God” has been a frequent theme in our prayers, our hymns and our sacred songs. It is certainly a biblical theme as well. There are 182 references to “trust” in the Bible, and most of these refer to us placing our trust in God. In America, our money even proclaims “In God We Trust.” I invite you to join us for worship this weekend as we take a look at Psalm 105 and at the refrain, “In God We Trust.” Does that mean that we expect God will “fix” everything? What about free will? How should we really trust in God?
