MONTHLY MISSION EFFORT
OCTOBER MISSIONS PROJECT:
The Missions Ministry Team has designated UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) U.S. Disaster Response as our October Missions Project. In September, disasters have occurred in the United States with unusual severity from the wildfires in the Northwestern U.S. to the damage left by Hurricane Irma in Florida and surrounding states.
Dozens of wildfires that had been raging across the Pacific Northwest flared up recently, unfurling a blanket of opaque smoke from the Cascades to the coast and raining ash down on cars, streets and people. People have had to flee their homes. Hurricane Irma was the strongest storm on record to exist in the Atlantic with winds of as much as 185 m.p.h. and had the lowest minimum barometric pressure of any hurricane in the Atlantic. Hurricane Irma has left massive devastation and deaths in its wake.
If you would like to help the people who are recovering from the wildfires and Hurricare Irma, please make your check out to Wesley UMC with U.S. Disaster on the memo line or click on the $ button at the bottom of the page. If you prefer to make a cash donation, there are blue mission offering envelopes in the pew backs. Thank you very much for your support.
