Hurricane Sandy Response
Rev. Tom Hazelwood, UMCOR Assistant General Secretary for US Disaster Response shares this information regarding United Methodist Response to Hurricane Sandy: "There will be a lot of needs as a result of this storm," which meteorologists have referred to as "near historic" in size. "There are many ways you can help, but the most important right now is by giving to UMCOR US Disaster Response, Advance #901670, which will also cover needs in the Caribbean region," he said. Be sure to choose "Hurricanes 2012" from the drop-down menu. For up-to-date Hurricane response information check the Office of Creative Ministries site at www.umocm.com/disaster or contact the Office of Creative Ministries Disaster Response staff person, Dan Steska.

5th of the Month Soup Kitchen is a hands-on mission. Our group meets at Sts. Peter & Paul Soup Kitchen in Soulard on the 5th of every month. We cook, we serve, we visit with those we serve, and we clean up after we serve. This is a very family friendly monthly mission. Please join us one month, or every month!
