Free Virtual Conference on Global Water Justice Issues
Chelsea First’s Diane Brown has written a great piece in the newsletter of the Michigan Annual Conference about how United Methodists around the world are working together on issues relating to clean water. This is a creative initiative that developed out of the Michigan-Liberia partnership, and the recognition that Flint has much in common with African villages that lack wells. Diane’s article, “Global Water Summit Seeks to Spur Change,” https://michiganumc.org/global-water-summit-seeks-to-spur-change/ describes an upcoming virtual summit, open to all and hosted by the Wesley Foundations of Ann Arbor and Mt. Pleasant. The summit is free and will be held on March 27 at noon.

OCTOBER 1, 2020 – Addressing two challenging issues in its community – emergency housing and youth mental health – this week, Chelsea First United Methodist Church gave $50,600 to Faith in Action of Chelsea and Dexter, Inc., and $25,300 to St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea for the SRSLY program.
These gifts, which address two of the church’s high priority mission areas of basic needs and youth mental health, are to be spent by the agencies no later than December 2023.
We invite you to learn how we use our gifts to help those around us locally, regionally and internationally.
