If you’re like me, you’ve been blown away by the images of the flooding in Nashville, TN. I have a couple of friends that live in that area and I’ve seen what they’ve had to deal with through the pics and videos they’ve been posting on Twitter and Facebook.
Nashville received around 15 inches of rain in a 24 hour period and the rivers could not handle it. The situation is intense and desperate as MOST people living in that area did NOT have flood insurance.
We have an opportunity to step up and make a difference. We are partnering with Pastor Pete Wilson and Crosspoint Church in Nashville, TN. They are in the middle of the mess and they will be there long after relief crews have left. I don’t believe there is a better mission to partner with.
THIS Sunday we will be taking up our regular Sunday Offering, and 10% of the tithes and offerings received will be sent to Crosspoint Church in Nashville to go DIRECTLY to the relief effort in that area.
Here is how the money is going to be used:
- To help people repair their homes (HUNDREDS of people lost everything!)
- To purchase equipment to assist with the relief efforts
- To purchase supplies such as water and food (all but one water treatment plant has been shut down!)
- To feed people
Those are just SOME of the things…
This is our moment to link arms with other believers to serve the broken and hurting. I’m counting on you Crosspoint Church in Spring Hill, FL to give and to give big! Let’s let our lights shine bright in the midst of this dark situation. Pray hard and give big!
