Ingathering donations are now being received for UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief).  This year we are collecting money donations for the various UMCOR projects including disaster relief, health care, and missionary support.  Please mark your donation “Ingathering” and place in collection plate.  Please see flyers on the back table about UMCOR projects. Thank you!
