Oklahoma Conference of the United Methodist Church

Disaster Response progress report

12/22/2017

A young-adult service group repairs a storm-damaged roof in southern Oklahoma. The Americorps members team have been serving through Oklahoma United Methodist Disaster Response Ministry. “I have something to be grateful for this Thanksgiving for sure,” a homeowner told them.
Bishop Jimmy Nunn has called for volunteers to help some 230 Oklahoma families repair homes ruined in flooding two years ago. Three months later, Disaster Response Coordinator Richard Norman reports about 195 projects remain incomplete.
Although an UMCOR grant for this work expires at year’s end, Oklahoma Conference disaster response donations are making it possible to extend recovery efforts through May.
Teams have come from United Methodist NOMADS; Americorps; and churches including Tulsa-Boston Avenue, Lawton-St. Paul’s, Norman-McFarlin, OKC-Chapel Hill, Grove-First, OKC-St. Mark’s, and the Wesley Foundation at SWOSU, among others. Will you help, too? Sign up at:
