Due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19 in Arkansas, many churches moved to an online or limited in-person format to continue worshiping together and sharing the message of Jesus Christ. To assist with this effort, the Methodist Foundation for Arkansas generously gave a grant to Arkansas United Methodist Churches with the intention of keeping congregations connected during the outbreak. With this grant, the Conference was able to provide 52 charges with 6 months of Zoom Pro, 22 charges with funds for printed materials and postage, 14 charges with funds for mileage, and 56 charges with Mevo cameras; for a total of over $30,000 in funds distributed across the state. “We are excited to see we received the Mevo grant and look forward to seeing how to utilize this new tool for ministry,” said Rev. Allen Crum of White Hall UMC, one of the recipients of the grant. We are incredibly thankful for the Foundation’s gift and their dedication to supporting local churches across the state of Arkansas in these times.
