This year’s West Ohio Annual Conference Offering will be used to support disaster response in West Ohio and around the United States. In 2020, millions of people were affected by natural disasters, from wildfires to floods to hurricanes and tornadoes. Experts are predicting an extremely active hurricane season in 2021, with a higher-than-average number of named storms, as well as major hurricanes. When disasters happen, it is often the local church that provides the first response to their community.
Half of the funds raised by this year’s Annual Conference Offering will go to the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) to be used for disaster ministry across the U.S., and the other half will stay here in West Ohio to provide assistance for our neighbors in need when a disaster strikes.
