Canton Flood Response

In early August, communities in Canton were severely impacted by the flooding of the Pigeon River. Since the flood, many communities have been working tirelessly to rebuild and repair damage. This flood has directly impacted many of our diocesan communities, including Grace, Waynesville, St. Andrew’s, Canton, and Lake Logan Conference Center. Below, please find ways to support and assist in the Flood Response efforts.


  • Updates on Flood Impact at Lake Logan - Read this letter from Director Lauri SoJourner to learn more about flood impacts at Lake Logan Conference Center

  • Ministry of Hospitality and Presence at Cruso United Methodist Church - Two and four hour shifts to provide hospitality and gather supplies for those affected in the area

  • Provide meals at Cruso United Methodist Church - Lunch and Dinner opportunities

  • Share professional building skills - electrical, plumbing, carpentry, etc.

  • The Canton Missional Network is an ecumenical network of 26 churches in the Canton and Waynesville area who are making a coordinated response to the many needs created by the flood.
