Hurricane Recovery Offering

The devastation from Hurricane Harvey and its flooding rains was catastrophic in southeast Texas.  The historic size and path of Hurricane Irma led to cataclysmic destruction in Florida.  The United Methodist Committee on Relief is already at work.  Vincent Church is collecting for these efforts with a special offering where 100% of the donations goes to the work at hand.  You can make your contribution through the Church Office.
