UMCOR Sager Brown Mission & Feminine Hygiene Drive

April 7
UMCOR Sager Brown
Dennis Dull

Registration is now closed. We will be commissioning our team in worship on Sunday, April 7.

The Seekers Sunday School class is going to work at the United Methodist Committee on Relief (known as UMCOR) Sager-Brown Depot in Baldwin, LA, from April 7-12, 2024. Each year, more than 2,000 volunteers prepare about $4 million in supplies for shipment from this depot, as well as helping those in need in the local area. The cost is $330 per person for housing and GREAT food!

If you can’t make it, you can still help! The Depot is running very low on Feminine Hygiene Kits. Please consider building some kits or donating the supplies necessary to construct them. Details can be found below.
