Bishop Sharma Lewis recently sent out a letter to all Conference churches calling for help for the current crisis situations in Afghanistan and Haiti. A copy of her letter was posted on the Tabernacle Facebook page. You may also read it online on the Virginia Conference website, VAUMC | Virginia United Methodist Conference or request a copy from the church office.

Here are ways to provide support for this special effort:

Give to UMCOR’s relief and recovery efforts:

All of your gifts to UMCOR, 100 percent, will be used to help those in need. To donate funds, please make your check out to Tabernacle UMC, and write the UMCOR Advance # of your choice on the memo line of your check or designate as such when giving online through the Tabernacle.

You may also give to the VAUMC Disaster Relief to Eglise Methodiste d’Haiti – This fund will help the churches of EMH directly impacted by the earthquake to help their recovery. This fund will also be used to provide food, water filters, kits, and tarps directly to people in the circuits (districts) impacted. Please note this on your memo lines.
