Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR)

The United Methodist Church helps those in need beyond the local community in several ways. Our Christmas Offering will be announced soon:  look for an announcement in the news on December 6th.

The Mission Committee would also like to share with you another way of giving, through the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR).  If you use the Internet and google “UMCOR – U.S. disasters“ you will come across three ways UMCOR is helping other regions of our country:  relief for wildfires (west coast states), hurricanes (states bordering the gulf coast),  and floods (Iowa, Nebraska). 

UMCOR provides relief to each of these areas in three ways: (1) by providing direct financial aid, if Bishops in the area request it; (2) by lending expertise, such as training disaster teams for aid; and (3) by networking to form connections with volunteers, such as those who put together hygiene and cleaning kits.

The UMCOR article also includes a section on the “Advance for Christ and his Church,” which describes the work of missionaries.  Our church supports the Graner family in the Dominican Republic and the Bartes in Laos, and our Mission Committee has reports and newsletters from both that are available to you.  Just ask.

Of course, during the pandemic our opportunity is to give financially through UMCOR or the Advance since all “hands on” work has been shut down.  Please give directly to Centennial with a notation in the memo section of your check, or give directly through the Internet information found in the article.

The Mission Committee includes Staff Member Eric Bjorklund, Director of Missions Jenna Harvey, Mary Hopkins, Randy Oelschlager, Sally Padgett, Ron Phillips, Deena Strohman, David Wright, and others on occasion for special projects.    


Immigration – Conversations with Friends

A further note on Immigration. . . .

Our Mission Committee has taken the plight of refugees to heart.  Many have settled in Minnesota, and our church has sponsored many.  These people cannot return to their country because it has been determined by our government they might face death if they return.

In addition to refugees, another category is a group seeking asylum, many for political reasons but others for different reasons related to persecution.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detains persons who have overstayed their visas or entered without legal admission.  These people generally seek asylum.  The poor among them cannot afford lawyers and have no other representation.

Through an organization here in Minnesota called “Conversations with Friends” detained persons can be visited by volunteers where they are being held if the facility agrees and they wish a visit.  These persons are facing deportation but they are being held for months, even years, before their case is legally decided.  An appeal process is available --to the Board of Immigration Appeals –and typically takes 150 days.

A list called Circle of Compassion contains the names of visited detainees who request prayers.
