When Nature Brings Destruction . . .
Along with all of you our hearts go out to the people in Moore, Oklahoma who have experienced devastation and heartache. Pray with us that the love of Jesus would surround those impacted by the tornados.
We are in the process of gathering information. We’re contacting local churches, organizations and people closest to the destruction to help us develop a plan of action. But in the meantime we know many of you would like to help in some way so here are some things you can do now to get involved:
- Pray, pray, pray - it’s our greatest resource and we want to be sure we’re praying for those impacted by the storm.
- Give to the RED CROSS: text 90999 to donate $10.00 or call 1-800-RED CROSS.
- Give to the Salvation Army: text STORM to 80888 to donate $10.00 or calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY.
Thanks for your part in the efforts to help. As needs become assessed we’ll want you to stay informed so check back for updates to this blog.
