Disaster Relief

Aid For Israel and Gaza

October 25, 2023 – We are in communication with two of our mission partners, United Methodist Committee on Relief and Hope Force International, who are on the ground in Israel and Palestine determining effective next steps for providing care and assistance. You can donate to our Disaster Relief Fund to assist these efforts by designating your check or giving envelope in worship or selecting Disaster Relief on our online giving portal below.

Join the Disaster Relief Ministry

Disasters can happen at any time, and when they do, BUMC is prepared to help in any way we can. Our Disaster Relief Ministry is recruiting volunteers for our leadership team to guide the vision of this ministry and our response strategy as well as volunteers interested in receiving Early Response Training to be able to provide on-the-ground relief with UMCOR after a disaster. Contact Yenín Echeverria at yecheverria@bumc.net to learn more.

BUMC's disaster response strategy includes three areas in which to minister:
  1. PRAY – Pray for the people affected by the disaster
  2. GIVE – Donate as you are able to the BUMC Disaster Relief Fund, which will go directly to relief efforts
  3. SERVE – We will keep you updated as service opportunities become available
