Rev. Brian Diggs, Associate Director, United Methodist Committee On Relief (UMCOR) West will be the guest speaker at the North District Annual United Methodist Women Celebration. This event will be held on Saturday, October 14, 2017, 12 p.m. at Journey UMC, 6450 E. Stewart Ave., Las Vegas, NV 89110. This opportunity will be open to North District churches, as well as the United Methodist Women units, to come and learn about UMCOR, how it operates, is funded, and provides services, as well as an opportunity for churches to bring UMCOR/Relief-Supplies.
In light of the recent disaster all along the gulf coast, UMCOR is in need of various relief kits, such as Cleaning Kits, Hygiene Kits, and School Kits. We, the church family of the North District can help and support its mission. You are encouraged to visit the web site UMCOR/Relief-Supplies to see what relief kit your church, group, or unit may prepare. In lieu of hands on opportunity, monetary donations can also be accepted. All churches are encouraged to attend to learn more about UMCOR. Prepared kits may be delivered between 11:30 a.m and 12 Noon to Journey UMC, so that they may be blessed and prepared for shipment provided by Rev. Diggs to the Salt Lake UMCOR Depot for further distribution as needed.
Please contact Eileen Guillermo at 702-807-3270 to indicate the amount of supplies your church will bring so that appropriate transport can be coordinated with UMCOR.
