Hurricane Dorian Church Offering Appeal Letter

Many of you have watched as I have, the heartbreaking video and pictures of the effects of Hurricane Dorian. While some of the States on the Eastern Coastline have been impacted, the most devastating impact has taken place in the Bahamas. The beauty of these islands have been ravished. Lives have been taken and while they can never be replaced, we can do our part to alleviate long-term suffering.

I’m of the firm belief that the church leads the way and sets the example in situations like this. We have helped in the past, we should do our best to help again.

We may not all be able to “go”, but we can all “give”.

Now, we know of course that we are not able to meet every need that comes our way, and while we cannot do “everything”, I believe all of us can do “something”. While all may not “go”, I believe all can “give”.

1 John 3:17 says this; If anyone with earthly possessions sees his brother in need, but withholds his compassion from him, how can the love of God abide in him?

We are not able to meet every need that comes our way, and while we cannot do “everything”, I believe all of us can do “something”. While all may not “go”, I believe all can “give”.

With this in mind, we will be receiving a special love offering on Sunday (DATE) in the morning service.  This will go to (NAME OF CHARITY). I realize many of you may have already given to a charity of your choice and that is wonderful, but this opportunity is being given to those who are unsure where to give.

We are well acquainted with this Charity we will be giving to and feel very comfortable the money will be used properly.

Our greatest desire is to share the love of Jesus Christ with people.  That often comes first through the sharing of some tangible gift which in turn helps the person to turn away from a feeling of hopelessness.  They are then able to begin to focus on the task ahead of rebuilding their lives.

This can be, and I believe will be, a time for the church of Jesus Christ to shine His love into the darkness of the moment.

Without a doubt, Government and Municipalities can be a great help but as always, churches and ministry groups are leading the way and we want to do our part because every “little bit helps”!

Recommended Charities

Some of the Christian based Charities we highly recommend are the following:

Samaritan’s Purse (www.samaritanspurse.org)
Christ in Action (www.christinaction.com)
Convoy of Hope (www.convoyofhope.org)

If however, you choose to give on Sunday here at (NAME OF CHURCH), please be sure to write your check out to the church. We will then make one check out from the church to send to the Charity we indicated in the early part of this letter.

Matthew 25:40 And the King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me.’

Most of all, please continue to pray for those impacted by this event and thank you so much for your generous prayers and giving.

Blessings in Christ,

Pastor John Doe

Special Offering for Hurricane Florence Disaster Relief

Dear Friends,

I greet you in the Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Many of you have watched as I have, the heartbreaking video and pictures of the effects of Hurricane Florence. While much the impact has been particularly devastating in North Carolina, we know that South Carolina has also been impacted.

While there have been some deaths reported, much of the damage is coming from the epic flooding taking place. Even as flood waters recede and people return back to their homes, we know they will be facing the daunting task of rebuilding and restoring their residences.

I’m of the firm belief that the church leads the way and sets the example in situations like this and while we have helped in the past, we should do our best to help again.

Now, we know of course that we are not able to meet every need that comes our way, and while we cannot do “everything”, I believe all of us can do “something”. While all may not “go”, I believe all can “give”.

I realize many of you may have already given to a charity of your choice and that is wonderful, but this opportunity is being given to those who are unsure where to give. We are well acquainted with this Charity we will be giving to and feel very comfortable the money will be used in some way to be a blessing to those who have gone through so much tragedy and hurt.

Special Offering for Hurricane Harvey Church Letter

Dear Friends,

I greet you in the Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Many of you have watched as I have, the disaster that has unfolded in the State of Texas.  Words such as “epic” and “unprecedented” are being used to describe an event many of us have never even imagined we would see unfold in our lifetime.  Some have said that it is not just a 100-year flood, but that it’s in the 500-800 year range.

It has been heartbreaking to watch as families are escaping the flood waters (not all have escaped), with just a pair of shoes and a back pack to take with them to the nearest shelter where they will receive much-needed assistance at least temporarily.  Children look at their surroundings in bewilderment, but to be quite honest, adults are doing the same thing.  1 John 3:17 says this; If anyone with earthly possessions sees his brother in need, but withholds his compassion from him, how can the love of God abide in him?

Now, we know of course that we are not able to meet every need that comes our way, and while we cannot do “everything”, I believe all of us can do “something”.  While all may not “go”, I believe all can “give”.

With this in mind, we will be receiving a special love offering on Sunday (DATE) in the morning service which will go to (NAME OF CHARITY).  I realize many of you may have already given to a charity of your choice and that is wonderful, but this opportunity is being given to those who are unsure where to give.  We are well acquainted with this Charity we will be giving to and feel very comfortable the money will be used in some way to be a blessing to those who have gone through so much tragedy and hurt.

Invitation to Volunteer for Disaster Relief Team

Greetings in Christ!

We as a church are praying for the recent disaster in (NAME OF PLACE), where property was greatly damaged, and even lives were lost.

While we believe prayers are vital to people getting through this with the help of God, we realize also that many people are hurting in ways that require our physical and material help.

There is an opportunity that will be available to go to the affected area and participate in the cleanup as well as to provide encouraging words and prayers directly with the people. While there is much work that will be done, we believe if someone just needs support through listening, we will be that support!

I appreciate this little story about the importance of human interaction in times of need:
Timmy was very afraid of the lightning and the thunder. His mom and dad went into his room during a thunderstorm and said, “Now, Timmy, don’t be afraid. God is right here in the room with you.”
He said, “Okay, Mommy and Daddy, I won’t be afraid.”
But then as the mommy and daddy went into their room and started to get ready for bed, the lightning clapped, and the thunder rolled, and Timmy screamed bloody murder. Timmy’s daddy and mommy went back into the room and said, “Honey, we thought we told you, you don’t need to be afraid. God is right here in the room with you.”
Timmy said, “Mommy and Daddy, I know God is right here in the room
with me, but I need someone with skin on.”

Many people we will minister to are praying in a similar way, so let’s be the ones with “skin on” to help meet the need.

A signup sheet will be available at the welcome center in the foyer, or if you would like to give us a call to sign up now, please don’t hesitate to contact the church for more details.

Gal. 6:2 – Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

Blessings in Christ!

Letter to Church – Love Offering for Philippines Disaster Relief (FREE Letter)

As many of you know, the Philippines recently suffered with a tremendous disaster called Typhoon Haiyan in which many lives were lost, and massive destruction took place as the wind and rain wreaked havoc upon homes, businesses and property.

PHILIPPINES-DISASTER-RELIEF-640x360You have seen many of the pictures of the destruction like I have, and know the repairs and reconstruction will take place for years to come.

Our primary desire at this point is to reach those who are in need of the basics of life which includes food and water, as well as shelter from the elements.

With this in mind, we are going to be receiving a special love offering for the Philippines on (DATE), and the funds will be sent to (NAME OF CHARITY) for proper distribution.  We have used (NAME OF CHARITY) many times in the past for times like this, and trust they will use the funds as intended so that many lives will be touched.

I have found that when the need is personal that we respond in a much more compassionate way.  In other words, if we know members of our family are in need, we will do everything within our power to minister to them and alleviate their pain.

Jesus made sure we knew how to “personalize” these situations when he gave us the following verse of scripture: Matthew 25:37-40 (NIV) 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’

When we realize our gifts of sacrifice and love are ultimately for the Lord it helps us to personalize our giving, especially when we have a personal relationship with Christ!

Of course, we can’t meet the entire need however, we are able to do “something” that will be a blessing to someone in need!

I encourage you to be in prayer concerning what your gift will be, then be prepared on (DATE) to give in this special love offering.

Blessings in Christ!
