The Western North Carolina Conference, United Methodist Church held their annual conference at Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center on June 16-19, 2016. Conference attendees were inspired by worship and teaching sessions and attended business sessions to learn about issues facing the United Methodist Church today.
Brett A. Loftis, CEO, of The Children’s Home spoke at the Thursday Conference Plenary Business session about the future of The Children’s Home and how the Western Conference churches can continue playing a vital role in helping support the children we serve.
When thinking about the needs of The Children’s Home, many people conclude that we just need money. And we do. But there are many other ways to support the work we do.
Churches from the Western Conference and their members can help out by:
Praying. Our children and our staff need your daily prayers.
Volunteer. You can volunteer as an individual, family, or group.
Becoming a foster or adoptive family. There are many children who are waiting for homes and families.
And yes, making a donation. Caring for children is not inexpensive and your monetary donation goes a long way towards supporting our children.
