UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) collects hygiene, school, and cleaning kits for distribution within the United States. Kits help sustain everyday life for people who lack ready access to essential supplies when a disaster strikes.
This year, the Rocky Mountain and Yellowstone conferences will collect any of the three kits at Annual Conference. Each church can decide whether to collect all of the items needed for a kit, or just focus on two or three items. The kit supplies will be sorted and assembled during the Immersion Project time on Friday, June 9. If someone from your church is riding a charter bus to Annual Conference, there will be room on the buses for the supplies. See the list of items for each kit here.
If you have any questions, contact Sally McConnell.
It is the duty and requirement of our shared covenant to attend all sessions of annual conference each year, including Sunday morning. If you are unable to attend any part of annual conference, please notify your district superintendent and the Conference Secretary, Rev. Elizabeth McVicker (firstname.lastname@example.org),
