March 24, 2020

Please pray for the community of Salt Lake City, UT following the Magnitude 5.7 earthquake on March 18, 2020.

The Rev. Elizabeth MckVicker, pastor of First United Methodist Church in Salt Lake City, said, "There is minimal damage at First UMC - a few cracks in walls and windows intact.  Centenary UMC had similar damage. Tongan UMC had water damage from a sprinkler that broke during the earthquake."

Mary Lou Storey, District Administrator for Utah and Western Colorado, spoke with Pastor Rob from Trinity West Valley City. "There is no damage at the church; however, they are hosting Family Promise.  The families are heading back to the church since there is no power in some areas of Salt Lake City."
