We just sent our congregation’s donations of $250 to UCC Disaster Ministries in order to help in the aftermath of the Nepal Earthquakes. Now the Houston area itself got hit by disaster. UCC Disaster Ministries are checking in and assessing the damage as well as the need for help:
Dear friends in Christ,
Your conference and those who have been impacted by the recent storms and flooding have been in my prayers this weekend. I wanted to let you know that we are here to support. I want you to know that you are not alone and my office is here to help in any way that we can.
Are you aware of any of our congregations or members that have been directly impacted?
Peace and Blessings,
Executive, UCC Disaster Ministries
And from the South Central Conference of the United Church of Christ:
I am hoping your church survived the torrential rains but if you did sustain any damage, please be in contact with me. Our prayers are with all who sustained damage from the weekend severe rains and flooding. We continue to pray for those are still missing in central Texas (and their families).
Rev. Douglas Anders
If you suffered sustained damage please let the Rev. Haas know. He can connect you to help. He can be reached on his cell at 801-368-1180 or email at email@example.com
If you were on the lucky side you can keep those affected in your thoughts and prayer and you can donate to UCC Disaster Ministries to help both in your neighborhood as well as around the world: http://www.ucc.org/disaster
