Young Mothers Spiritual Retreat

Retreat Sign Up Form

Four Saturdays: April 6 – 27, 2019
9:30 a.m. – 11:35 a.m.

To all young mothers:

It’s hard for young mothers to find time or help to do daily chores and errands, let alone to attend any faith formation programs. However, it’s essential for all young or new mothers; faith formation is a continually ongoing process, so new and young mothers must be properly nurtured in order to fulfill their baptismal vocation.

Lincoln Park’s Young Mothers’ Spiritual Retreat: Faith Formation provides babysitting, necessary help to care for babies and young children, and will guide new mothers to attend to their maturity of faith, as well as their children’s. You do not have to be a member of Lincoln Park UMC in order to come- it is open to all women!

Faith Formation is the church’s responsibility. Every person is to grow continually “in every way into [Christ] who is the head.”

(Ephesians. 4:5)

  • Experienced nursery volunteers and babysitters will be available during all sessions
  • Course texts and materials (written, audio-visual, etc.) will be provided
  • Food and drinks will be provided

You are Invited!

“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”

(Proverbs 22:6)

UMCOR Responds to Current Disasters Around the World

UMCOR Responds to Current Disasters

Give Now

Updated: November 12, 2018

CURRENT DISASTER RESPONSE

UMCOR and our partners are responding to disasters both in the United States and around the world. Please join us in prayer for the areas affected and consider a gift to UMCOR Disaster Response. As we assess the impact of these storms, we will provide timely updates as we receive information. We will also share additional ways in which you can provide assistance.

Wildfires in California

As thousands flee wildfires in California, UMCOR is in close conversation with the disaster response coordinators of the California-Pacific and California-Nevada Conferences of The United Methodist Church.

UMCOR is already actively engaged in California in response to previous wildfires and we anticipate supporting both conferences as they identify and respond to the needs of the populations affected by the current wildfires.

We pray for the safety of the firefighters and first responders as well as those evacuating their homes. UMCOR stands ready to support the response of the conferences with relief kits, Early Response Teams, and funding.

Hurricane Michael on the Gulf Coast

We are proud to say that because of UMCOR’s investment in disaster response training, our partners are better prepared to reduce risk and respond effectively to the needs of survivors.

UMCOR partners have begun their local response in the Alabama-West Florida, South Georgia and Florida Conferences. Other neighboring conferences have provided assistance, and all were well prepared to respond quickly using UMCOR response training and the UMCOR supply network.

Affected Conferences are not yet ready to receive out-of-conference volunteers. We remind those wishing to provide assistance to please not self-deploy or donate unsolicited items. Many areas are still engaged in emergency response efforts.

Alabama-West Florida

Before Hurricane Michael made landfall, Conference Disaster Response Coordinators were in touch with local leaders and secured a 35,000ft2 warehouse in Marianna, FL with necessary equipment to expeditiously stock and distribute relief supplies.

Moreover, the Conference was awarded a $10,000 solidarity grant which partners are using to support evacuees and survivors in the impact zone. Assessments are underway and continue to expand as more residential areas open to response teams. Many church structures have been damaged or destroyed. Partners continue to receive relief supplies from UMCOR warehouses.

For more information please visit, hurricanemichaelrecovery.org, or call 888-942-4477 (please note this line should be used for information relating to the Alabama-West Florida Conference only).

South Georgia

In South Georgia assessments are underway and partners have deployed a shower trailer, clean-up supplies and water. Early Response Teams are mobilizing, including teams from both South Georgia and North Georgia Conferences. Local churches and partners are assembling additional cleaning kits for immediate use.

For more information, please visit https://www.sgaumc.org/newsdetail/assessing-hurricane-michael-damage-12238766.

Florida

The Florida Conference was awarded a $10,000 Solidarity Grant to deliver relief supplies to affected areas. Early Response Teams are responding and assessing damage.

For information please visit https://www.flumc.org or call 855-228-3862.

Hurricane Florence

Local partners and volunteers have responded to the needs of those affected by Hurricane Florence in unprecedented ways. ERTs are active in both the South Carolina and North Carolina Conferences. Partners have delivered supplies and kits throughout the region and local churches continue to assist with damage assessments and relief efforts.

We are asking that those wishing to assist please do not self-deploy or donate unsolicited items. Affected conferences are managing their responses locally and will make requests for materials and response teams as they continue their assessments.

In North Carolina and South Carolina, long-term recovery volunteer teams are still needed in response to previous disasters, providing opportunities for those wishing to assist immediately while the Conferences continue to assess the specific needs from Hurricane Florence.

If you would like to volunteer, contact the North Carolina Disaster Call Center at 888-440-9167, disasterresponse@nccumc.org or through the North Carolina Conference webpage.

If you would like to volunteer, contact the South Carolina Call Center at 803-726-3105, screcovery@umcsc.org or through the South Carolina Conference webpage.

UMCOR Across the U.S.

UMCOR U.S. Disaster Response teams are hard at work not only in the Carolinas and Gulf Coast, but across the country. Often, our partners work in places affected by disasters that do not receive substantial media attention. Explore the many places UMCOR partners are currently assisting in disaster response on the map below.

UMCOR Around the World

Earthquakes and Tsunami in Indonesia

UMCOR is fortunate to consistently work with many partners in Indonesia. We are currently coordinating with partners on the ground to address immediate needs of vulnerable people affected by the earthquakes and tsunami. We have been in contact with Methodist Church leadership to support assessment, initial relief work and further evaluation and prioritization of needs as we reach recovery phases.

Typhoon Mangkhut

Since 2017, UMCOR has trained and funded Disaster Management teams in order to empower communities to proactively alleviate suffering caused by the effects of disasters. Their work allows for communities’ advance awareness and preparedness, aligning with the efforts of other conference teams and ecumenical councils from across the region.

At a national level, this initiative ensures that the maximum number of people are prepared for a storm’s impact. Moreover, the Manilla, Davao and Baguio Episcopal Area offices continue to distribute daily weather advisories to community leaders.

UMCOR IDR has authorized a 10,000 USD Solidarity grant to address immediate needs in the most hard hit provinces of Baguio while the Disaster Management Coordinators in the Philippines continue to work with their communities after Typhoon Mangkhut and maintain their assessment of damages and analysis of needs.
