News From The Pews

I know you are praying for those impacted by last night’s storms. Please add to your list the folks at Dodson Chapel and East End. Preliminary reports indicate that both churches suffered significant damage. Bishop McAlilly and Cumberland River District Superintendent, Scott Aleridge are reaching out to the pastors of those churches today. I will update you when I receive more information.
I am thankful for your willingness to support our neighbors. Many of you have already called to ask how you can help. Government Officials ask that only those trained as first responders report to impacted areas at this time. In the days to come there will be opportunities to help in tangible ways and the Tennessee Annual Conference is already working on organizing those efforts. The chair of the Tennessee and Memphis disaster response ministry, Robert Craig, has met by phone with UMCOR and the communication team for the Tennessee Annual Conference. You will receive information later today on how your church can help. Robert Craig’s email address is DisasterResponse@tnumc.org and here is a link to our conference disaster response web-page.

Once again, thank you for your prayers and for your warm heart.
I look forward to witnessing all the ways God works through you to bless our neighbors.
