Flood Response

Rev. Dr. E. Scott Jones
March 20 2019

As part of a joint effort with other UCC churches, we are responding to the catastrophic floods in Nebraska and Iowa.  Through Sunday we will be collecting cleaning supplies to be delivered to our UCC churches in Arlington and Fremont for distribution to the local communities.  Their pastor sends this list from the Church World Service as an example of the type of things needed: CWS-Emergency-Cleanup-Buckets  Do not feel you have to collect everything on this list.  Also, other cleaning supplies that do not match the list are also needed.

Stay tuned for more ways to help in the coming weeks and months.
