Prayers for Those Impacted by Hurricanes
We continue to pray for healing and rebuilding from the effects of hurricane devastation.
In the past weeks our country watched as Harvey and Irma pushed through Texas and Florida. In Texas, it’s estimated that Harvey dumped about 15 to 20 trillion gallons of water across Texas. Many people from our church community have family and friends who have been affected by the flooding. As part of our efforts to help, we’re planning a mission trip to support and equip partner churches in Houston. We’re also supporting OskarBlues in our community, who has already supplied more than 220,000 cans of clean drinking water to Houston and is planning on sending more to Florida.
Now that Irma has passed and left behind destruction, we’re mobilizing efforts to provide support to our partner churches in the affected areas. As we develop a plan with our partner churches, we’ll update this page with how you can get involved with relief efforts.
Here’s how you can help:
- Pray. Pray that God would move in powerful ways. Pray for relief to the areas that most need it. Pray for the families who have been affected by the devastation.
- Give. In 2013, Oskar Blues stepped up to partner with LifeBridge and local flood relief efforts. Today, we’re partnering with them again only this time to help with relief efforts in Texas. Donations collected will be provided to OskarBlues Can’d Aid Foundation, which provides cans of clean water and helps provide funds to get families back on their feet. You can write a check (denote ‘Hurricane’ in the memo line), give cash in an envelope with a memo notation, or online (in the drop down menu under “FUND” select Disaster Relief).
- Serve. We’re mobilizing a mission trip to provide in person support and clean up with partner churches in the affected areas. If you’d like to stay up to date with upcoming trip details, sign up for our email list.
