In support of the Missions Celebration on Oct. 27, Children’s Ministries is raising money and collecting items to make Hygiene Kits to send to United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) for Hurricane relief and other disaster responses.

UMCOR Hygiene Kit helps provide basic necessities to people who have been forced to leave their homes because of human conflict or natural disaster. Hygiene kits are also used as learning tools in personal hygiene, literacy, nutrition and cooking classes.

During the Missions Celebration, our children will be assembling the Hygiene Kits during Sunday Morning Live programming and will welcome a speaker from UMCOR.
