Central Blood Drive for Red Cross

Central United Methodist Church has been proud to partner with the American Red Cross and be a part of all they do. Our sixth blood for the Red Cross will be held on Thursday, May 5 between noon and 5:00. Did you know the Red Cross needs to collect more than 13,000 blood donations and more than 2,500 platelet donations each day and 84 percent of blood donations are given at blood drives like the one we are hosting. And did you know the blood collected by the Red Cross helps millions of patients in over 2,500 hospitals and other facilities across the country. The current blood shortage is critical, so now is the time to get registered. Go to redcrossblood.org and enter CUMCRICH into the box that says Find a Blood Drive. Find a time slot that is convenient for you and provide the requested information.

Ukraine – UMCOR

Our hearts break to see the terrible news continuing to stream from Ukraine. War is a great evil which harms our fellow image bearers in ways unimaginable. Jesus calls us to so much more in our love of neighbor. May there be monumental change and lasting peace soon. Our prayers continue for those in Ukraine, the ongoing Yemeni and Tigray Wars, and all those who live in houses where the threat of political violence hang over them every night. Please join us in ongoing prayer. If you feel led to give through our missional humanitarian ministry – UMCOR – where 100% of funds go directly to supporting the cause – you can do so here
