Vestry has voted to donate $100.00 worth of supplies to the flood relief effort in Johnson County, KY. Bruce Cory will purchase the supplies and they will be joined with the supplies donated by Grace on the Hill United Methodist Church and Union College. The local district of the United Methodist Church is renting a 10 foot box truck to transport the supplies to Johnson County to the United Methodist Committee on Relief support center in Paintsville, KY. Bruce and the Rev. David Miller, campus minister at Union College, will be driving the truck to Paintsville Saturday, July 25.
Help loading the truck at Grace on the Hill United Methodist Church will be appreciated. We will be loading the truck at 9:00 am Saturday morning. You can personally purchase supplies and bring them to Grace on the Hill that morning to be loaded on the truck. If you wish to make a monetary donation toward the $100.00 vestry has voted to donate, please make that donation in the offertory this Sunday, July 26, marked for Johnson County flood relief. Any cash donated by parishioners in excess of the $100.00 already designated will be forwarded to UMCOR as a cash donation to help the flood victims.
