In this week’s Midweek Message, the Rev. Magrey deVega, our Senior Pastor, discussed the catastrophe that Hurricane Michael left in The Bahamas. Here’s an excerpt from his message:
We find ourselves as a human community in the aftermath of yet another catastrophic storm. The images coming out of The Bahamas have been horrifying and heartbreaking, as we think about the unimaginable devastation that many people in the Bahamas are now living in. We also join in prayerful concern for those along our eastern coast who are currently facing the storm.
Our immediate response as a congregation is to be one of generosity, primarily through financial contributions to the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), which is already communicating with Bahamian officials to begin coordinating immediate and long-term relief.
We invite you to make a generous donation to UMCOR by making your check payable to the church and designating it for “UMCOR” or “Dorian Relief.” You can also give online right now on our website. Because all of UMCOR’s administrative and infrastructural overhead is covered by our apportionment giving, 100% of your contribution will go directly to people in need.
Also, Bishop Ken Carter discussed the unfolding tragedy in a video distributed throughout the Florida Conference. You can watch the video here.
Regardless of how else you choose to respond to the needs of those impacted by the storm, we encourage you to pray for the victims and those who are responding to their needs.

Our shared values are important – to us as a church and to us individually.
Each week in our current worship series, “THE CORE: The Center of Who We Are”, we are learning about each of our core values: Christ Centered, Biblically Rooted, Warm Hearted, Open Minded, Mission Directed and Connection Committed.
