One Great Hour of Sharing – March 30, 2014
Your GIFT GIVES LIFE
Worshippers arriving June 2, 2013, at First United Methodist Church in Moore, Okla., found the church lacked electricity. They didn’t need it. The Son powered that Sunday morning service.
For almost two weeks, the church had charged into the chaos caused by a tornado May 20. Two dozen people died. Thousands of homes were gone. When another round of deadly tornadoes struck May 31, church members kept giving and serving even without electricity and water.
EQUIPPED TO SHARE GOD’S LOVE
The senior pastor, the Rev. Tish Malloy, threw open the doors of the church and prepared to give, proclaiming, “We have life!” Children scurried to select activity kits. Additional folding chairs appeared as the crowd grew. Passing the peace of Christ now held extra meaning.
With your generous gift, First Church in Moore, Okla., can continue as a long-term UMCOR recovery center.
