A Message from Bishop Cynthia Harvey:
Our prayers continue for all those impacted by the rising waters across the state of Louisiana. Our Early Response Teams have been mobilized, flood buckets are on the way from the UMCOR Depot, and an emergency grant has been granted from UMCOR for immediate response and deployment.
Assessment of the impacted areas is in process and as soon as we determine the best way for people to help, we will post on social media and the Louisiana Conference website. Please keep checking on neighbors, the elderly and your loved ones and KEEP PRAYING!
Due to the flooding and severe weather across the state the Laity Retreat that was to begin Friday afternoon has been cancelled, as are all the Safe Sanctuary training events.
Those cancelled District events are as follows:
Acadiana: March 12, First UMC, New Iberia
Baton Rouge: March 12, First UMC, Denham Springs
Lake Charles: March 12, First UMC, Lake Charles
New Orleans: March 12, St. Luke’s UMC
Shreveport: March 12, Grace Community UMC
Prayers for the safety of all,
Cynthia Fierro Harvey
