UMCOR Relief

In response to Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Maria, we are collecting Cleaning Kits (flood buckets) and Health Kits for those affected. We are following the instructions of the United Methodist Committee on Relief, which has been providing highly effective disaster relief for many years. Donations are also welcomed, with 100 percent of proceeds going directly to disaster recovery. Donations can be made online to UMCOR or a check can be written to Spring of Life. If you would like to make a financial gift, please do so through the UMCOR website here. If you would like to write a check to make a donation, please make it payable to Spring of Life with "UMCOR" in the memo line. Spring of Life joins churches across Florida and the southeast in praying for those who have been affected and currently being affected by the storms and collecting supplies for those who have lost so much.

Imagine No Malaria

"Imagine No Malaria" is the United Methodist Church's initiative to eradicate malaria in Africa. Unlike many other diseases that are awaiting a cure, malaria was eliminated in the U.S. in the 1950s. However, in sub-Saharan Africa, malaria continues to kill one person every 60 seconds. But there is hope! "Imagine No Malaria" is part of a global partnership and together with other partners, our generation can beat malaria once and for all.

Love Pantry

Spring of Life Church community lovingly raised money to sponsor a Love Pantry in two of our local schools. When a teacher identifies a student in need, the family can be provided with food from the Love Pantry. Our kids will learn better and sleep better at night when they don’t have to worry about food. This program has had a very positive impact on families in need. The schools are looking for donations to support these families outside of what the Love Pantry can offer. If you are interested in supplying other items such as canned meats or crackers, please bring to the church and place your donated items in the Love Pantry donation box.

Ronald McDonald House

Here’s how easy it is to make a difference in the lives of the families who turn to the Ronald McDonald House program during a child’s medical crisis: Pop off tabs from your aluminum beverage and soda cans. Save them. Deposit in container in the back of sanctuary. Once the pop tabs are collected, they are taken to be recycled in exchange for dollars, which support the children and families served.
