Bishop Palmer invites congregations and individuals to support an offering for the COVID-19 Relief Funds. In Galatians, Paul reminds us to carry each other’s burdens. Your gifts and your prayers will lighten the burdens of your neighbors, both near and far away. Your generous gift will be divided equally to support the following ministries:
UMCOR COVID-19 Fund—Funds are used to equip partners assisting vulnerable populations in the United States and around the world impacted by COVID-19. Grants will address pressing needs in the areas of health, food insecurity, water, sanitation and hygiene, and economic instability.
West Ohio COVID-19 Fund—Congregations and ministries across West Ohio have been responding to emergent and continuing needs of their neighbors. Record numbers of people have requested food assistance along with other emergent needs. There is a disproportionate impact on people and communities of color and among those who are poor. Funds staying within West Ohio will be released to our congregations and ministries to assist with their ongoing response.
If you have any questions about the Annual Conference offering, please contact Dee Stickley-Miner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
