Blue Lake United Methodist Assembly

Blue Lake United Methodist Assembly is available for Hurricane Katrina victims, individuals or families, to be housed and fed as needed. We ask that these persons in need coordinate their needs through FEMA, Red Cross and/or our Alabama West Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church Disaster Recovery Ministry (866.340.1956) to ensure adequate space remains.

Blue Lake United Methodist Assembly can be reached at 334-222-5407, Email director@bluelakecamp.com, or registrar@bluelakecamp.com, FAX: 334-427-1469.

Blue Lake United Methodist Assembly is located on Alabama Highway 137 which is about 18 miles south of Andalusia. We are four miles from Pleasant Home School and are on the school bus route. Also we have a local doctor and nurse practitioner who have volunteered their services to any displaced person for however long. Please continue to pray for these victims.
