We are all painfully aware that many people have been devastated by the Hurricane (Name). While we are thankful that the human toll was low, we must not forget the many people in these areas of our Country who lost everything they own.
For this reason, I am asking those who can, to give a special offering that will be used to help the victims of the hurricane.
Please note: We will be sending the money given through this effort to Convoy of Hope. This Charity has proven to be a worthy conduit of blessing for receiving and distributing such funds. (Use any Charity here you are comfortable with).
I can’t imagine what it would be like to lose everything: family photographs, wedding albums, the kid’s first drawings as it would be such a time of trial.
To suffer such a loss and to deal with not having the most basic necessities, such as food, shelter, and clothing, would be so difficult.
No doubt, you and I will probably never get to meet the people we bless through this time of giving, rest assured, we are serving a wonderful Lord who sees and knows our hearts as we reach out to be a blessing.
Matthew 6:19-21 (KJV) 19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
While some items certainly can’t be replaced, I’d like First Christian Church to do what we can. We often hear the phrase “do unto others” quoted, and this is a perfect situation to take that attitude to heart.
If it were your family, wouldn’t you want others to step up and lend a hand in helping you get back on your feet? This is part of our obligation and a wonderful opportunity to show God’s love through our actions as the church.
I look forward to the opportunity to bless the lives of those most affected by the hurricane, and I hope that you will do what you can to bring blessings to those who have lost so much.
Thank you in advance for being prayerful about giving to this worthy cause.
Pastor John Doe
