UNITED METHODIST WOMEN NEWS – April 2021
It is time to begin planning for the UMW-sponsored “Kits for Conference”. This may be new to some of you. Every year at Virginia Conference, churches have an opportunity to prepare kits with specific items in them that are taken to Conference. These kits are made available to the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) from the Sager Brown Depot.
Last year instead of purchasing the items needed for the health kits, we asked for monetary contributions since we were in the throes of COVID. You responded very generously and we were able to send a total of $1291.00. If money is contributed, the suggested amount is $12.00 for the kit items, $1.00 for toothpaste, and $1.00 to cover processing and shipping. However, any amount that anyone would like to contribute to this cause will be appreciated and the total amount collected will be sent to the Treasurer of the Virginia Conference
We hope that you will consider helping in this very worthwhile mission of the United Methodist Church. In many instances, UMCOR is one of the first on the scene of disasters and we can be a part of that aid by contributing to these kits.
Any contributions made by check should be made out to Manor Memorial United Methodist Church and our treasurer will send a check to the Conference treasurer.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me at 740-3686 or email email@example.com.
