Helping is in our DNA

As we are mandated to practice social distancing, most United Methodists are rethinking our regular ways of doing church.

We are attending worship, Bible study and Sunday school online.

We are finding ways to care for our neighbors.

We are buoyed by our faith in Jesus Christ.
