UCC Emergency Appeal in Response to Winter Storms
The United Church of Christ issued an emergency appeal for support for those suffering from the winter storms in Texas and other states.
UCC Disaster Ministries and Global H.O.P.E. Team are working with leaders in the impacted communities. Current and ongoing needs include support for shelter and food, clean-up, and repair. In addition, these communities will need emotional and spiritual care.
UCC Associate General Minister the Rev. Karen Georgia Thompson says, “We want to assist our churches as they provide food and shelter for those in their communities. This appeal will assist to provide immediate needs in the aftermath of these devastating storms.”
The Rev. Campell Lovett, the interim South Central Conference Minister, said “the tragedy is still unfolding.”
To join in the emergency appeal, you can contribute here and designate "Emergency USA."
Next week, leadership in the Social Action and Mission Board and Laura will speak with the Minister for Disaster Response on other ways we can engage and provide support.
