Pray

Hurricane Michael has devastated communities in the Florida panhandle. Prayer should be our first response to any situation.

  • Let’s be intentional about praying for those who have lost loved ones, homes, businesses, and more.

  • We also want to remember those who are responding to the storm. Police, fire fighters, the Florida National Guard, linemen, volunteers, and so many others are working to restore the panhandle communities. Many are away from their families and are doing dangerous work.


Give

We commit that 100% of every dollar given to our disaster relief fund will assist in efforts to provide relief and restoration. You can make a donation online or by designating a gift for "disaster relief” on a giving envelope.

Go

We have sent two teams to the Panama City area to help tarp houses, do chainsaw work, assist with mud out, and other debris removal.

Our middle and high school students will be going in June to assist with rebuilding efforts (more information).

You can contact Kate Kalin to be added to a list that is updated about future trip dates and other types of opportunities.


Long-Term

The restoration of communities in the Florida panhandle will be a long-term process. We’re currently exploring the possibility of partnering with churches in the panhandle into 2019 and sending teams to assist in rebuilding efforts.
