In Pittman Park’s main hall, a framed image hangs with the inscription “Munholland UMC Thanks Pittman Park UMC.” Pittman Park was connected with Munholland UMC in 2005 after hurricanes Katrina and Rita hit the Gulf Coast in 2005. Pittman Park members wanted to aid recovery efforts in the area, so they worked through United Methodist Church channels to connect with a congregation affected by the storms. Munholland in New Orleans, Louisiana was selected as the focus for Pittman Park’s fundraising. Pittman Park member Karen Murphree was amazed when she learned of the connection because she had attended Munholland when she lived in New Orleans years earlier. After gathering donations, Pittman Park was able to provide more money than they had originally anticipated directly to the New Orleans church.
