Hurricane Harvey and Irma Relief
OUR RESPONSE AND HOW YOU CAN HELP
In times like these, Souls Church comes alongside local churches and pastors through our partnership with ARC to help with disaster relief. We believe the best way we can help is to equip, resource, and empower the churches that are already in the affected areas because they know the people, places, and areas of greatest need better than we could alone. The churches we partner with also have incredible volunteers who are committed and able to serve their community in both the short-term and long-term. These churches have built relationships that allow them to offer not only practical help, but the emotional and spiritual care that is desperately needed in the midst of disaster. People will turn and look to God in times like these. Through the local church, they will experience His hands pulling them to safety, His feet pushing through the flood waters to provide relief, and His love creating hope when it is needed most. We believe God is present in this recovery, right there in the trenches—helping, healing, and working through His people to provide light in a time of darkness.
If you are wondering how you can help, we are so thankful for your commitment to loving people in need. The following are ways you can be a part of the recovery.
You are already helping in a major way through your giving. We will continue to send resources from our missions budget on your behalf. If you would like to give more, you can designate an offering through Souls Church’s online giving (designate it for Hurricane Relief) or give through the Association of Related Churches.
Right now, the flood waters and conditions are precarious and harsh, and the best thing we can do is let the relief professionals do what they do best. We are looking to partner with other churches in Texas and Florida, who will be sending out some relief teams of a skilled nature. If you are a skilled, trained professional that would like to serve on a relief team please watch for more details or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your desired interest in serving in this capacity.
We will continue to give you an update on the upcoming Sundays in our services as needed. Thank you for your love, support, prayers, and generosity.
