Storm-related flooding and other damage occurred in several areas of the North Carolina Conference from Thursday through Monday, and the rivers have continued to rise, threatening even more homes and businesses. The Windsor UMC and homes in the Elizabeth City District town sustained flooding, and Carolina Beach experienced water damage, affecting a number of homes. Reports of damage continue to come to the Conference and the need for disaster response is increasing. MERCI already has sent flood buckets to Windsor and more can be distributed if needed. Gifts for disaster response are needed; please announce the special offering for Conference Disaster Response, as soon as possible, and submit funds to Conference Advance #SOO176. Send remittances, using the Conference remittance form, to Conference Treasurer, P.O. Box 60053, Charlotte, NC 28260.
