Disaster Relief

Hurricane Dorian Response Update

While Dorian is still impacting the Bahamas, we are beginning to mobilize our storm relief efforts.
We will partner with Convoy of Hope to help those affected in the Bahamas.

We are continuing to pray the storm stays in the open ocean and doesn’t impact any more people. However, through Convoy of Hope and several churches on the Atlantic coast, we are also preparing to help as needed.

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble” – Psalm 46:1
