Leaving a Lasting Legacy

Foundation COVID-19 Operations Update

Foundation COVID-19 Operations Update

Dear Friends:

Grace and Peace to you in the name of Jesus Christ. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, I wanted to share what the Kansas Area United Methodist Foundation is doing to continue our part in preventing the spread and keeping our staff safe.

As the number of cases in our area continues to increase, our office building has been temporarily closed to visitors. Our staff is still here to support you and your church/organization’s ministry. The staff will still be available via phone and email during our regular business hours, Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. At times, all staff will be working remotely. If no one answers when you call our office, please leave us a message and we will return your call within the business day.

Although the pandemic has canceled most in-person meetings, we are still available to meet with you and/or your congregation via Zoom, another online platform, or by phone. In addition, we are working to make more resources available to you through our website and upcoming webinars. We will send more information on this soon.

If your church has an investment account with the Foundation, we are continuing to make regular, weekly distributions. Please email us the withdrawal request form or mail a copy to our office at the address listed below.  

Please know we are praying for you and your church as your navigate this time. If we can assist you in any way, please contact us.
