It is critical that the church acts when there is a need. Well, there is a need. Hurricane Harvey hit Texas and Louisiana hard and there is an on going need of donations. As the Body of Christ, we serve the Lord Jesus Christ in every opportunity and need. We serve not for selfish reasons or intent but out of Love for God and others. If God has given you a dry roof over your head, food, clothing, and life; it is your duty as a servant of God to use that which God has given you for others in need. There are many ways to serve and help.
- Pray for relief from the storm and for those being rescued and affected by this storm. Form prayer chains with your local churches.
- Give generously. Find reliable organizations to donate to. Funds should be used for assessment,
mobilization, relief grants for flooded families and churches, to
purchase needed supplies and equipment, to construct Sheds of Hope, and
to setup and operate flood recovery sites.
- Send relief supplies & equipment. Get your friends, family, and church together and put together supply & equipment bucks which can be dropped off at local relief agencies or mailed to local churches.
- Prepare to GO. register with a relief organization and volunteer to serve.
