Disaster Relief

If you or someone you know would like to be considered for help through this fund, complete the application and return to Rev. Clint Wyllie.

Applications will be reviewed confidentially by a Disaster Relief Fund committee who will contact you within one week of receiving your application.  If you or someone you know needs volunteer help to restore your home, please contact the church office.

Monthly Missions Opportunities

Each month, the missions committee has brought a ministry to the congregation’s attention to support. For years we have called this the Monthly Mission Offering or MMO, and our focus was on financial funding. Over the past year, we began to change the Monthly Mission Offering to Monthly Mission Opportunity. This is an intentional move to focus not only on ways these worthy organizations needed funding but also provide us service opportunities through which we can experience and share the love of Christ.

June Monthly Missions Opportunity: UMARMY

U.M. ARMY workcamps provide exterior home repairs to those who are in need of assistance. The focus of the camps is to serve others in the name of the Lord, to foster Christian fellowship, and to have time to worship together. Students are divided into work teams and have two adult leaders to guide them and supervise the work on clients’ homes. Host churches provide lodging.

This summer we will be helping the communities of Chandler from June 20th-26th and Jasper from July 18th-24th.

Because of COVID, we are expecting smaller camps, but the need in the communities we serve has only grown. Each camp would typically cost about $30,000 to run. This year we’re expecting smaller numbers but higher prices. Lumber is in short supply, so our projects will have as much as tripled in cost. The Student fees cannot cover the total cost. We’re hoping to raise at least $12,000 to cover the expected shortfall. 

Your monetary donations will help buy building supplies, lumber, paint, and tools to help our youth make a difference in the lives of their clients.
