ENGAGE WITH OUR COMMUNITY
CarePortal is coming to Heritage United Methodist Church!
What: CarePortal is a technology platform connecting us to local children and families in crisis. It allows a partnership between governmental agencies tasked with helping families and churches tasked with being the hands and feet of Christ.
Why: Heritage UMC excels in our shared work of feeding people and changing lives. CarePortal is an amazing resource that allows us to do this work. Matthew 25:40 - Whatever you did for one of the least of these, you did for me.
Requirements: A compassion for serving the least of these in our local community.
When: A team of folks has already received training and they are ready to help you in the next steps of working together to change lives in our community.

"Church members using the CarePortal platform found it increases awareness of the needs of hurting children and families in their community, increases action by making it easier to assist families, and creates meaningful connections
with those they help."
I am excited about this new mission endeavor and hope you will be part of it!
Grace and Peace,
