Ottawa First United Methodist Church Encourages Continued Giving

Pastor Cheri Stewart and Chair of Finance Larry Windsor of Ottawa First Methodist Church recently received a check from the United Methodist Church Congregation that they usually designate for a specific purpose in the church, however, this year the Pastor and Mr. Windsor have decided to donate that check to the Disaster Recovery Fund at The Starved Rock Country Community Foundation. Below are some words written by Pastor Cheri Stewart regarding the decision to donate the money to the Disaster Recovery Fund and encouraging other churches and organizations to get involved in the recovery efforts. The Disaster Recovery Fund has come a long way since day one, but there is still an ongoing need for funds and through donations like these, we can keep the giving spirit alive and truly help those who have been adversely affected by the February 28th tornado. We want to thank Pastor Cheri Stewart and her congregation for their giving spirits and continued support for the people of this wonderful community.
