Mount Olivet United Methodist Church in Seaford has been supporting United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) projects this year. UMCOR is a part of the United Methodist Church and often is one of the first responders to arrive in disaster areas.
The Koininia Adult Sunday School recently delivered a large number of personal hygiene kits to an UMCOR site in Bowie, Md. The kits were assembled with items supplied by church members, class members and community members. Each kit contained a hand towel, a washcloth, a comb, a fingernail or toenail clipper, a bath sized bar of soap, an adult sized toothbrush, and 10 adhesive bandages. These items were packed in a gallon resealable bag according to the directions provided. The kits will be taken with the UMCOR workers as they respond to emergencies around our country.
Money collected during April was sent to UMCOR for Ukraine relief.
Sermons through June 5 will be on the theme of water in the Bible. Water is mentioned more than 700 times in the Bible. To go along with the theme of water, we are collecting a special offering for UMCOR Special Advance #30219988 to benefit Water@Work, implementing community-based water purification systems in impoverished communities. This project is taking place in the Dominican Republic. We’re asking people to toss in at least their loose change each Sunday to go towards this special collection. For more information about Water@Work and their ministry, please go to https://www.wateratworkministry.org/.
We encourage anyone who would like to help us support UMCOR projects to join us on Sundays, drop off your contribution at the church at 315 High Street, Seaford or visit our website at https://mountolivetseaford.org/.
