We give glory to God for using the Christ UMC congregation to help over 1,118 families in need in Lehigh after Hurricane Irma. Our fellowship hall was open every day to provide a cooling place, prayers, food, water and cleaning supplies We helped over 200 households register for FEMA and provided snacks and a play area for the kids.This was a teamwork response.The Methodist connection worked well, as we got supplies, volunteers and support from many churches.
Donate here to the Florida Conference Hurricane Michael Fund to help churches and the neighborhoods that surround them. Through December 31, 2018, donations will be matched up to $500,000. Volunteer to bring yourself or a team to help with the recovery.
