We have several opportunities to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey. First of all, pray for those whose lives have been impacted by hurricane/tropical storm Harvey. Please also pray for the Early Response Teams, disaster coordinators, and many volunteers in The Texas Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, Louisiana Conference of The United Methodist Church, Río Texas Conference of The United Methodist Church and Central Texas Conference who are working tirelessly to provide relief after Harvey. Also, you can make a financial donation to UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief), donate cleaning supplies to be packed into a cleaning bucket, or sign up to participate in a response team that will assist in clean-up efforts (we are waiting to organize this trip). 

Donate to Disaster Response efforts through the United Methodist Committee on Relief.
