Much of Whatcom County and many in our own church community have been profoundly affected by the recent flooding. Many are asking what they can do in a time like this. Our response is to Pray, Help and Give.
How can you pray?
Pray that God would encourage, bring comfort and restoration to the people affected by this disaster. Pray that God would use this time to draw people closer to Himself. Pray that God would show you how He wants you to respond to the people in need.
How can you help?
There are many ways to help in our community through disaster relief organizations. www.whatcomstrong.com has means for people to give and get involved. They are organizing work parties (skilled and unskilled labor) around the clock as well as ways to support those helping.
Samaritans Purse also is organizing aide, volunteers and donations for people affected.
Sunrise will also be organizing some work parties to help those in our community and beyond rebuild. Pay attention to our announcements for more information.
How can you give?
As well as giving to the above mentioned charities, you can give to our deacons fund which is used to aide people in need in our community.
Thank you for all of your help in this time of great need!
