The Western Pennsylvania (WPA) Conference of The United Methodist Church (UMC) serves as a connection between the worldwide UMC and the 800 local churches in the WPA region. Although EMB is not an official agency of the WPA Conference, EMB coordinates UMCOR kit collection and disaster response with the conference. Occassionally, grants for specific projects at EMB are awarded by the WPA Conference as well.

 

 

 

LIFE
LIFE (Living Independence for the Elderly) is in both Butler and Lawrence Counties. LIFE’s goal is to keep elderly, and sometimes disabled, people in their homes. Where ramps are needed, EMB works with LIFE to build ramps.
