Hurricanes Harvey and Irma

We have some incredible opportunities to help those impacted by Irma:

  • Those in the Keys – If you have leftover hurricane supplies that you would like to donate to them, please bring them by the church today (Friday). We are in need of: bottled water, canned goods, batteries and any extra left over hurricane supplies you may have. There is a plane going to the Keys in the morning. Please continue to pray for those impacted by Irma.
  • Those in Cuba – We have partnered with two ministries that are making a difference in Cuba. We will have more details on how you can help later on today.
  • In our community – Next Sunday, we will have an opportunity to give towards our Mercy Ministry Offering. These funds go towards helping those that are going through a time of need.

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma – Double Trouble!

Mission to North America (MNA) is in full response mode in TX following Hurricane Harvey’s impact. Now we are assessing Hurricane Irma’s destruction in FL, GA, AL, TN, and SC. Although some areas are still underwater, and/or without power, early reports are that we have many opportunities to assist PCA communities rocked by this second, wide-spread disaster while still ramping up our response in TX.

MNA Disaster Response has staff and key leaders on the ground checking in with our congregations which number more than 160. Obviously it will take some time to determine the needs for each church family and how best we can help in the Name of Christ.  MNA works through a network of relief providers coming alongside local PCA churches and mission organizations in the affected areas. Funding is needed for mobilization of assessment teams, setting up short-term and long-term recovery sites that will host volunteers, supplies and equipment purchases, the transportation of urgently needed relief supplies, and financial grants for stabilization of homes belonging to our members and church physical plants. MNA also channels funds to our congregations to assist non-affiliated (non-PCA) storm-impacted families in desperate need through Mercy Ministry.

Please prayerfully consider a generous donation to equip your disaster response ministry to respond well to this new disaster.
