We invite you to pray for the scammer, who apparently believes he/she is in a difficult situation.

Be aware than no church staff member will ever contact you by email with an “urgent” request for gift cards. Always check the email address if you are suspicious – legitimate email will come from our church address, “@onalaskaumc.org.” Please call the office or the staff person and confirm with them by phone when you have questions.
