Our Christian brothers and sisters in the Holy Land are pleading for our help and asking the Church to take effective action to end the Israeli occupation and bring about a just peace in the Holy Land. The national United Methodists for Kairos Response group formed in response to this urgent call from Palestinian Christians. First UMC is currently forming a more local (statewide) UMKR group.
If you are interested in seeking justice for Palestinians and would like to join this group, please contact Christine Anders at First UMC in Des Moines. You may reach her by phone at 515-244-6209 ext 209 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The first project we will be working on is a display for Annual Conference.
