The New Mexico Annual Conference endeavors to be responsive to Disaster relief needs of its local churches and communities, as well as those suffering from a national or international disaster event. When disasters occur, information will be dispersed in the most efficient and compassionate way that we can offer. Keep in mind that while there is heavy lifting involved in some jobs, there are positions for encouragers and emotional support people. If you feel a calling to help in any way you can, please contact us.

One of the first steps is to organize Early Response Teams (ERT), which requires training and certification of all ERT members. Please prayerfully consider if this might be an area in which you could serve.

Domestic and International Disasters:

The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is our denominational avenue for best use of your donations to help people in need. Advance Specials are established whenever there is a call for help in dealing with disasters of all kinds. By donating through your church, conference treasurer or directly to UMCOR ( and by marking the assigned number for that project on your check, you are helping others effectively!  100% of your donation goes to helping people in need.

Sager Brown Depot is a collecting point for Health Kits and other action when needed. Health kit info
