In response to the damages in the Bahamas due to Hurricane Dorian’s deadly assault and the 2019 hurricane season, we are supporting the work of Samaritan’s Purse. This ministry is providing a temporary hospital in the area.
Another main and ongoing response to disaster relief is through the work of our denominational relief agency, the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). For more information on ways to pray, give and go, see below!
Pray for the families that have been affected by the storm, including those that have lost property and family members.
Pray for the leadership and their preparation for a response.
Pray for all agencies, both Christian and government, that will respond to those in crisis over the next few weeks.
Pray for the local churches in these areas as they shepherd and lead their congregations through this season.
Pray for the teams that are already on the ground serving in response to the storm.
Give directly online via Pushpay: Select “Disaster Relief” in the drop-down menu. You may also write a check to the church with “Disaster Relief” noted in the memo line of your check. All financial donations to Christ Church that are marked “Disaster Relief” will be sent directly to the organization to help disaster relief efforts. Thank you for your generosity.
