Reaching Out–The United Methodist Church


In eleven countries, hands folded in prayer are already at work.



Today, the world is feeling a loss as big as any in history. Generations erased. Entire communities swept away. The destruction the people from South Asia to East Africa are enduring is almost beyond belief and understanding. And as the families of those affected by the recent tsunami remain in our heartfelt prayers, the people of The United Methodist Church are already putting those hands of prayer to work.

Because this disaster is not just this week’s news story or a headline soon to be forgotten. It is about people struggling to put lives, families and communities back together. Finding hope from knowing that, with God, they are not alone. Knowing that prayer, money and skilled hands will be there for as long as it takes to stop the pain and ease the memories.

We ask that you join us, and millions around the world, to give to those who have lost so much. Through your local church, synagogue or mosque. Through our international partner organizations. Through The United Methodist Committee on Relief at MethodistRelief.org. Through whatever means that comfort you, let your prayers and generosity be felt across the world.

Open Hearts. Open Minds. Open Doors.
The people of The United Methodist Church.

Put your prayers to work at MethodistRelief.org.
