There are two main ways we can help those affected by a natural disaster
Thank you for praying and giving to those who need hope and help.
- The first is to pray: for those who have lost loved ones; for those who are homeless and hopeless; for those who are unsure of the whereabouts of friends and family; for those ministering in the midst of the death and destruction.
- The second is by giving of our hearts and resources to help those in need. The Presbyterian Disaster Relief funds go directly to help those whose lives have been impacted by disasters.
- Pastor Brian
Thank you so much for your generosity.
