Your church can help with hurricane relief and more!

Your church can help with hurricane relief and more!

Hurricanes. Fires. Earthquakes. And more on the way. What in the world is going on? God alone knows. C.S. Lewis said, "Pain is God’s megaphone to rouse a deaf world, to draw people closer to himself and into his purposes." But we can know this…God is at work in the fields of disaster and is inviting the Church to join him there.

These are times when the Church can shine especially brightly, just as the Church in Houston has done since Hurricane Harvey dumped more than 50 inches of rain in their city. They're housing people in their facilities, helping to gut damaged houses, and sitting with heartbroken homeowners whose every possession is molding in damp piles on the curb. No one is serving in this crisis more lovingly or sacrificially than the Church! 

How can your church shine?

PRAY

• That God will restore the spent energy of many believers in Houston, and now also in Florida.

• That believers will share not only the strength of their muscles but also their hope…a commodity in short supply for people who feel they've lost everything.

• That churches in our Fellowship will rise together and serve as only the Church can, meeting physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.

GIVE

Sending teams, equipment, and supplies costs money. Your church family's tax-deductible contributions to one or both of these funds is very much appreciated!
