Dear Friends of Gretna United Methodist Church,
Please keep Revs. Jo Ann and Ed Cooper in your prayers, along with the congregation at First United Methodist Church in Pineville. When a band of storms passed through central Louisiana today, the Cooper's home was destroyed by a tornado. Thankfully, Jo Ann, Ed, and Jo Ann
's mother were not at home when the house was hit.
Rev. Jo Ann Cooper, currently co-pastor with her husband, Ed, has been appointed to become the pastor at GUMC, effective February 2020.
We will keep you updated as we learn more about ways we may be able to help the Coopers. In the meantime, your prayers of love and support will mean a great deal.
Grace and Peace,
