Southern Baptist Disaster Relief (SBDR) feeding, chainsaw and mud-out units continue to minister in multiple locations in the Carolinas, providing thousands of hot meals, essential supplies and trained volunteers to communities affected by Hurricane Florence.
Category 4 Hurricane Michael made landfall on October 10 near Mexico Beach, Fla., and volunteers and equipment are ready to move in to serve affected areas, providing help and hope in tangible ways.
During such crises, NAMB works closely with national and local partners, including the Federal Emergency Management Agency, state emergency management teams and other
volunteer organizations like American Red Cross and The Salvation Army to coordinate an effective response. Pray for those volunteers serving now and those who will soon be serving. When you give, you are directly resourcing state Southern Baptist Disaster Relief teams who are being the hands and feet of Jesus to hurting people.
Church family, we have such an amazing opportunity to eliminate our debt by the end of the year!
I am so overwhelmed with gratitude and thankfulness for how God blessed this past Sunday. We prayed that our First Fruits offering would give us the $500,000 that we would need, along with the sale of the south campus, to pay off our debt by the end of the year. Through your faithfulness and love of our church, we received $500,702 through gifts this past Sunday and a few pledges for the month of October. God gave
us exactly what we asked for—WOW! He is so faithful, and while we should never be surprised at His goodness, it is certainly overwhelming. Thank you Church for your support and faithfulness to the gospel of Jesus Christ and our moving forward as a faith family.
There are others who have said that they intend to give in the next couple of weeks, and for this I am grateful. Every gift that we get from now until the end of November will give us the ability to do some much-needed renovations on the Now center. If you are able to give over the next few months, I want to encourage you to do so. Thank you so much, again, for your prayers and support. I love our church so much and I’m so excited about the days ahead as we strive to reach as many people as possible with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
For His Glory,
Aaron D. Burgner
