Current Needs

"All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I had been eager to do all along." Galatians 2:10

Hurricane Relief Through UMCOR 

As many storms threaten different areas around the world, UMCOR and our partners prepare to respond, especially to Hurricanes Michael and Florence in the United States and Super Typhoon Mangkhut (Ompong) in the Philippines . Please join us in prayer for the areas affected and consider a gift to UMCOR Disaster Response. 100% of the funds you donate to UMCOR go directly to the needed areas! 

You may donate to UMCOR in a number of ways:

  • By text message - send a text to 301-31 with "CCUMUMCOR" followed by a space, and then the dollar amount to be donated. For example, to donate $100, text "CCUMUMCOR 100" to 301-31.
  • Via Christ Church Online - after logging in to the system, click on "Giving" and use "UMCOR" as the Designated Fund for your donation.
  • By check made out to Christ Church United Methodist with "UMCOR" in the memo line.
