The flowers in the sanctuary today are dedicated to the glory of God and given in memory of Bill Dent and Mr. & Mrs. W. W. Dent, Sr. by Jean Dent.

Hello, beautiful people of South Georgia,
     Following the 7.8 magnitude earthquake last weekend in Nepal that claimed over four thousand lives and thousands more injured, I know that you, the Beautiful People of South Georgia, join me in extending prayers and heartfelt sympathy to the victims of the earthquake and their families.
     We pray for the search and rescue operations being undertaken and the longer-term relief and mission work that will be needed in the coming weeks, months, and even years.
     We pray for divine cooperation between government agencies, churches, and relief agencies, including our own United Methodist Committee on Relief, in providing humanitarian aid.
     We pray for the Methodist-Wesleyan family of Churches in Nepal and surrounding nations to continue their mission and purpose amidst these difficult circumstances.
     We pray for God to move hearts in our own area of the world to extend generous financial assistance in support of these efforts.
      We pray that God will enable the people called “Methodists” to be engaged and to fulfill in visible ways John Wesley’s call to action: “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.”
     Finally, we pray that all that is done will help the people in the affected areas know the loving and healing presence of the living Christ through the Body of Christ.   Amen.

With love,
Your Bishop,
James R. King, Jr.

How You Can Help
     The UMCOR website [www.umcor.org] continues to be updated as details of the United Methodist Church's response are worked out. In the meantime, this is some information we can share and that can guide you in any questions you receive:

  • We continue to be in prayer.
  • Contact has confirmed that all of our United Methodist missionaries and their families are safe.
  • UMCOR is preparing a response, working through local and international partners. 
  • Donations to support the response to the earthquake in Nepal and other international disasters can be made through UMCOR Advance #982450. 

     Checks can be made out to your local UMC and write UMCOR Advance #982450 in the memo and put in the offering plate or gifts can be made online.

Kairos #20 Valdosta State Prison Annex | Print |  E-mail

     Forty-three residents of VSP Annex joined us on that Thursday evening 10 days ago.  They arrived excited and anxious.  After introductions and refreshments, we spent just a little while explaining our mission, to bring the love of Jesus Christ inside the walls.  
     Thanks to you I gathered 100 dozen cookies!  I cannot begin to name everyone who baked and brought them, or those whose prayers preceded me, however please know I am grateful for your efforts and encouragement.  The cookies you sent got added to the other approximately 900 dozen (if you do the math you’ll see we took over 10,000 into the prison), but they didn’t get used until Friday night.
