Preparing to serve in crisis: How Grace UMC's disaster became a ministry
from United Methodist Churches of Indiana
Following a major flood that had impacted the city of Franklin, Indiana in 2008, Grace UMC congregants addressed their disaster preparedness needs by asking themselves, “How would we respond differently if flooding happened again?” This question was a starting point for the church to strengthen their relationship with the United Methodist Committee on Relief and form partnerships with emergency response organizations, as well as neighbors and leaders throughout the surrounding community.
