Welcome to the Cookeville District!
As we begin to look at a new year of ministry together, I want to highlight a couple of ministry opportunities. First, mark your calendars for an upcoming disaster response training event on February 20th at 8:00am-4:00pm at Cookeville First UMC. More information about registering for this event is available in the January newsletter. The training is specifically for Early Response Team certification. These Early Response Teams are the teams of people who enter recovery areas in the very initial stages of response.
By now you have probably heard that the Lutts United Methodist was completely destroyed by the tornadoes that struck our area on Christmas Eve. You can participate in the following ways:
Pray: please continue to lift up in Prayer this church, its pastor, and the Lutts community as well as all of the volunteers who are responding in this time of need.
Volunteers (from TN Conference Churches): If you are available to assist, please call Reverends Tommy and Linnette Flood at 931-724-4735.
Donations: To make a donation to “TNUMC” for the Lutts Tornado Response, please mail to the Attention of Disaster Response: Angela Overstreet to 304 S. Perimeter Park Drive, Suite 1, Nashville, TN 37211.
Special thanks to all of you for the many vital and fruitful ways you demonstrate your love of God and love of our neighbors. I am continually awed by the depth of your devotion.
Rev. Max Mayo
