The Home Depot Partnership Blesses Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference
Tuesday, February 5, 2019
The GCFA partnership with Home Depot is a Ministry Partnership that allows cost savings for United Methodist churches while offering back funds to the connection. These funds are distributed throughout the connection to further ministries of the church, support the needs of the church, and save the connection money. GCFA and Home Depot were fortunate to be a part of such a project with the Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference.
“The majority of our OIMC churches are rural and many of them have been built by volunteer in mission teams over the years. Some of our churches are in areas that are economically depressed and cannot always care for their facilities as they would like. The Labors for Neighbors group came and brought their equipment and people to replace the roof at the Tohwali UMC near Broken Bow, OK, located in the boundaries of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. The local church did not have enough funds to purchase the roofing materials and they were blessed to be able to use the Home Depot gift cards provided by GCFA, which was enough to purchase the roofing materials. The church was truly blessed to be able to have the funds to purchase the materials. “We are very thankful for GCFA for being a partner with Home Depot to help us continue ministry in local churches in OIMC.”
