Hurricane Florence

 At Worship Center, part of serving our world involves responding when there’s a crisis -- locally, nationally, or in other countries. We want to be the hands and feet of Christ, serving people and responding to needs. Right now, tens of thousands of people are suffering after Hurricane Florence devastated the state of North Carolina and is now headed northeast as a tropical depression. At least 32 people have died because of Hurricane Florence -- which is still causing catastrophic flooding and hundreds of thousands of power outages -- and rescue efforts are underway.

 

 

Volunteer

When crises like this hit our nation, Worship Center partners with Christ In Action, a disaster relief organization based out of Virginia. Christ In Action is in North Carolina, ready to assist community and government agencies with recovery efforts. The organization is setting up a base of operations in New Bern, NC, and is accepting volunteers, scheduling them through October 19.

Volunteers will need to arrange their own transportation to the CIA base in North Carolina. For more details or to register, visit Christ In Action's website

Donate

If you are unable to go to North Carolina but you want to donate, you can text to give any amount using the keyword “FLORENCE” to 717.925.7288 or you can give online. When giving online, choose "Hurricane Florence Relief" as the designation on the drop-down menu.
