Hurricane Irma is one of the most powerful storms ever recorded. With wind gusts reaching up to 210 mph, it has the potential to be devastating to everything in its path. We are closely monitoring the storm and are in communication with local churches and ministries in Florida. We will continue to update this website as the situation unfolds. We ask you to please be patient as we assess the needs and work to be of best assistance during this situation.

It is important we follow an organized response so that we, as a church, can be of assistance and not a hindrance. We ask that you not travel to the disaster site(s) unless you have communicated with an organization already involved in relief efforts and they are aware of your arrival.


At this time, we are not aware of opportunities to volunteer. Please check back regularly for updates on how you can serve.


Prayer changes everything, brings comfort to those in difficult situations, and heals the brokenhearted. The power of prayer moves mountains. Pray for:

  • All those who are affected by the hurricane.
  • The first responders and their families.
  • The storm to weaken.


Your donations will be given to our ministry partners helping those affected.
