Disasters come in all shapes and sizes, but the need is always there for the church to be the church regardless of the situation. Below is the list of current disaster related situations and the specific needs. Please pray for opportunities to present themselves to address not only physical needs but also spiritual needs of those that are affected.
Hurricane Ida left a trail of devastation throughout Louisiana. At this time there are four ways to be involved.
1) Donate items for disaster relief teams to begin to deliver as early as this weekend to those in need. Below is the list of current needs. They can be dropped off at tables inside the entrance of the Faith and Love buildings during office hours.
2) Consider giving financially as you feel led. You can do it in one of two ways. You can give online through the button below and designate "disaster relief" in the description, or you can bring a check to the church and note "disaster relief" in the memo. Either way, we will collect those funds and deliver them, where applicable, to meet the needs of those hurting.

3) Pray for those impacted. Pray for the resources needed to be provided. Pray for their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being as they are encountering this difficult time.
4) Consider serving on a team. This may be helping to sort and load supplies locally, delivering supplies as needed, or assisting with distributing with our local partners. Also, if you have a specific skill or trade you can use to help, please let us know. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 601-898-4969 to let us know you availability or to answer any questions you might have.

Haiti has been decimated by the recent earthquake on August 14th, and our partners in the region have been responding to the needs as they are able. Both Praying Pelican Ministries and But God Ministries are in Haiti ministering as they encounter devastation not seen in recent years. Here are some ways you can help.
1) Pray for the Haitian people and the ministries working to meet their needs in Jesus' name. Pray that opportunities will present themselves to address not only physical needs but also spiritual needs.
2) Consider giving to our ministry partners as you feel led. You can do it in one of two ways. You can give online through this page and designate "Disaster Relief" in the description, or you can bring a check to the church and note "Disaster Relief" in the memo. Either way, we will collect those funds and deliver them to our mission partners in Haiti to be sure it meets the needs of those hurting.
