Saturday, September 2
We have established the First Colony Hurricane Help Network and you can sign up for it HERE. This is an email network designed to communicate both needs and solutions related to Harvey. Some of you need help and some of you are eager to provide help. This network is designed to broker information. Get the word out and let’s connect needs and solutions.
Our First Colony Church building is open today (Saturday) from 10:00am-5:00pm and if you know anyone who needs anything (tools, food, water, diapers, etc.) we have plenty at our building. Tell them to come by and we are glad to assist. We will also continue to receive donations (see my previous emails for suggested items) and we also need baby bottles, baby formula and deodorant. You and our community at large have been incredibly generous.
I have asked the following people to serve on our Harvey Response Leadership Team: Caryn Wolfe, Greg Stirman, Rocky Hudson, Brady Burgett and Bret Gowens. They are all eager to serve. This team brings together leadership, insurance, construction, finance and compassion experience. They will pay close attention to our church-wide responsiveness and distribution of resources. Their working mission is Galatians 6:10 – Let us do good to all, and especially to those who are fellow believers.
Do you know someone who wants to donate money to Harvey relief? They can do so easily on our website at http://www.firstcolonychurch.org. 100% of those donated funds go for hurricane relief.
HERE is the absolute best information I know for those who need to do some quick flood repair.
All of these initiatives are part of our plan to do the following four things well:
1. Faithfully receive in the name of Jesus donations for hurricane relief.
2. Faithfully and wisely distribute in the name of Jesus donated funds, goods and services.
3. Humbly partner with others for maximum effectiveness.
4. Be a broker of helpful communication and information for intermediate and long-term hurricane relief.
Remember, only 8:30am & 11:00am worship services at First Colony campus this Sunday. Nothing else. No services at Foster Creek tomorrow, September 3.
Blessings everyone, Ronnie
