Hurricane Harvey-Texas Disaster Response

A Request From Bishop Graves, August 29, 2017 – Friends, It is hard to believe the news coverage coming out of Texas and the ongoing catastrophic flooding from Hurricane Harvey. My heart breaks as the stories continue to be reported about how lives are changing as a result of this storm. Please join me in praying for the people in Texas and that the United Methodist Church may best respond so that we may be a blessing. Our conference will respond through the collection of requested items and ERT teams. If you are part of a team, you may find out more information through Susan HuntThe most immediate way you can act and respond, in addition to praying, is through financial donations. I am asking each church in the Alabama-West Florida Conference to take a monetary collection in your worship services this weekend. Those collections may be sent to the conference office (or given through your local church) with “Hurricane Harvey-Texas Disaster Response” in the memo line. Thank you for making this national tragedy a priority in your local church. I am grateful for each of you and your ministry. Together, we are better though our connection. 

With Deep Appreciation, Bishop David Graves, Alabama-West Florida Conference 

 In connection with this effort, Church Street is not only collecting funds (please make your check payable to Church Street United Methodist Church and write UMCOR 901670 in the memo line), we are also a collection point for our conference of box fans, 25′ heavy-duty 14-gauge extension cords, 2 gallon garden sprayers, flat billed shovels, rakes with 3″ tines, UMCOR Cleaning Buckets and Hygiene Kits

MERGE: Student Ministry Parent Partnership

We invite your entire family to our first MERGE conference.

Come expecting dinner, childcare for all ages, and an hour of vital information for parents and students that will empower you to MERGE with Christ into your family even more. This night will separate parents and students for individual conferences and children (1-5th grades) and nursery (B-5yr) for playtime.

The MERGE parents topic will be “How to Give The (Sex) Talk” by Jonathan (JB) Brown.

The MERGE students (6-12th grades) topic will be “Social Media Dangers” by Jonathan (JP) Pitts, Associate Pastor, FBC Selma with Dallas County Sheriff’s Dept. officers.

We want to empower you in this ever-evolving world of technology and crisis in order to MERGE parents and students together towards Christ.

We admit that we do not have all the answers to solve the issues of cutting, depression, SnapChat, social media addictions, bullying, suicide and many more issues that our youth face daily…BUT we can hold parent conferences to educate and empower parents on these crisis issues. We do admit that Jesus Christ sacrificed Himself in our place, in order to allow us to have a right relationship with God Almighty, and pursue His plan for our lives…and He is the pursuit of our existence.

This event is sponsored by Dallas County Churches.
