Want to help the victims of Harvey? UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) is the way to go! Why?

  • UMCOR are often the first ones in and the last ones out. Katrina operations lasted for years beyond other relief groups.

  • The administrative costs of UMCOR are funded by the church, so 100% of your designated donation to them goes directly to relief work.

Three easy ways for you to give:
1 - By check payable to St. Paul UMC- write "UMCOR Relief" in the memo. Checks may be placed in the Sunday offering plates at each campus, dropped off at the church office, or mailed to St. Paul UMC, PO Box 909, Ocean Springs, MS 39566-0909

2 - Online at the St. Paul website. Scroll down on home page to Give Online. Select the fund "Relief - Recovery"

3 - Text giving. Text SPUMCOS to 73256 and then follow the link to give. Select the option "Relief - Recovery" To get set up for St. Paul text giving, you will securely enter a credit or debit card.
