Hurricane Harvey Response

A note from Pastor Tracey:

Greetings Westlake!

I’m so grateful for your continued prayers and encouraged by your deep interest in responding to the needs of those affected by Harvey! As our Annual Conference, District, and local church have continued to plan, I have new information for you on how you can make a difference in response to this natural disaster.

Our Rio Texas Conference Bishop, Robert Schnase, and our District Superintendent, Teresa Wellborn, request that we direct our financial giving to the Rio Texas Conference Disaster Response Fund. Like funds given to the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), all donations will go directly to relief and recovery efforts as opposed to administrative or overhead expenses. Additionally, by giving to the Rio Texas Fund, all giving will directly benefit affected communities in the Rio Texas Annual Conference. With your donations, we will partner with UMCOR to sustain this relief effort for the many months ahead. They will allow us to offer immediate relief and to partner with Volunteers in Mission (VIM) and UMCOR for a long-term response.

Here is detailed information on how you can help. And please invite friends, family and neighbors who are looking for ways to help to join us in our efforts!
