Ways to Help the Tornado Victims

United Methodists in Kentucky, Tennessee and neighboring states are coming to terms with the devastation of a string of tornadoes Dec. 10-11, while also mobilizing quickly to provide food, emergency shelter and other relief.

Please continue to hold victims, survivors and relief workers in your prayers and make a gift to UMCOR’s U.S. Disaster Response and Recovery Fund at https://umcmission.org/advance-project/901670/.

Additional Ways to Help:

Contributions can be sent directly to the Tennessee-Western Kentucky Annual Conferences. (They are currently the Memphis and Tennessee Annual Conferences, but a merger is on the way)! You can find detailed information on their disaster relief efforts at: Disaster Response - (twkumc.org)

One of our pastors, Dr. Jerome Sahabandu from Menomonee Falls Community UMC has had direct contact with the Mayfield, KY United Methodist Church. Their pastor, Rev. Joey Reed responded with this message: Jerome, I'm so happy to hear from you. We are so happy to hear of your prayers!  Please continue praying for our efforts to rebuild our small town. The city of Mayfield is a wonderful place, but we are hurting. We would be honored if you would give to the disaster relief fund at mayfieldfirst.com. Any gift of any size would be greatly appreciated ! Thank you again for reaching out! Joey Reed
