Flooding in Danville & Pittsylvania County

This past September and October, Danville & Pittsylvania County experienced historic flooding of the Dan River and other waterways as a result of hurricane Florence and tropical storm Michael.  Currently, there are over 45 homes with significant damage, most of which are homes of persons and families that were struggling with economic challenges prior to the flooding.  Contributions to assist in relief efforts can be made to the Virginia Conference Disaster Response Fund.  Checks can be made to NMO-UMC with “Conference Disaster Response Fund #5037” in the memo line.  Gifts can be placed in the offering plate or dropped by the church.
