If one member suffers, all suffer together with it.
~ 1 Corinthians 12:26a
We have encouraged people from all over the country to join us in our time of need. So far, over 125 people, congregations and synods from 21 states have responded, with nearly $85,000. Your gifts will help us reach our $100,000 goal. God is good.
In the aftermath of the unprecedented ice storm and record low temperatures, individuals and congregations within the Gulf Coast Synod face multiple crises: food insecurity, homelessness, gutting and renovation. Not all have insurance or the means to afford hotels. Food has spoiled due to lack of power, impacting the most vulnerable. All this exacerbated the humanitarian crisis already taking place due to COVID.
The Gulf Coast Synod is engaging in an emergency appeal, with a goal of $100,000. Gifts to this Emergency Winter Freeze Appeal will provide resources to repair lives, homes and houses of worship. It will support congregations serving communities in need. It will help us all share God’s love through food and housing assistance.
Gifts of all sizes will make a significant impact. Prayerfully consider the giving chart and give generously.
