Please Help Our Neighbors!

Hurricane Laura struck as a Category 4 hurricane and is now dropping rain inland in places already damaged by multiple spring and summer storms. On its wide and lengthy projected path through the country toward the Northeast, the storm will continue to cause damage and exacerbate living conditions for many as we all contend with staying safe and healthy during the pandemic.

UMCOR-trained volunteers are already preparing to assist people in their community. Your help is needed to provide the tangible items necessary for relief work including personal protection equipment that our volunteers will need to stay healthy.


Please help.

Your gift, today, to U.S. Disaster Response will enable UMCOR to serve people impacted by the catastrophic wind, rain and fire events of this season. We need your help, today.


Please give.

Since 2005, Epworth has hosted a monthly country breakfast for the community.  Scheduled on the 1st Saturday of the month from March through December, all the profits from the love offering received at these breakfasts are shared with local, regional, national and international mission projects.

Our members are active in several local agencies that serve the community, such as Lake Christian Ministries, SML Good Neighbors, Neighbors Helping Neighbors, Gideon’s and the Ronald McDonald House.  They will gladly assist those interested in getting involved with their favorite agency.
