* FLOOD RELIEF TEAMS ARE FORMING NOW: CONTACT JACK AULICK TO VOLUNTEER
Lakewood UMC will be taking up an Altar Rail offering on Sunday, September 4 to contribute to the TXAC appeal for flood relief funding.
If you would like to donate sooner, designate "Louisiana Flood Relief" in the memo section of your check and place in the offering plate this Sunday, or drop by the finance office.
"Bishop Huie sent out a plea for $150,000 in flood relief funding on behalf of the Louisiana Conference. Shares Bishop Huie, “I have been in close contact with Bishop Cynthia Harvey of the Louisiana Conference and our neighbors there desperately need our help. Some of you may remember Bishop Harvey as she helped the Texas Conference in our efforts through Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Ike. She is describing this situation as Hurricane Katrina without the wind.”
