As a church family, I know you are looking for ways to respond to the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey. Let me suggest a few ways you can respond. First, I ask that you pray for the victims of this natural disaster, as well as the emergency personnel and other volunteers who are responding to the affected areas. Second, you can give monetary gifts through our church designated for “Hurricane Harvey Relief.” These gifts will be forwarded to the North American Mission Board and one hundred percent of your gifts will be used to provide for the needs of the people affected by the storm. You may also choose to give directly to other reputable organizations such as Samaritan’s Purse. Right now, monetary gifts are the best way to make sure individuals and families receive the items they need at this time. As we become aware of more specific needs we will pass them along to you. Third, you may want to consider serving on a disaster relief team through the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board or Samaritan’s Purse. Again, we will keep you informed about these opportunities. Please remember that we are in the early stages of response to this disaster. The response will require long-term commitment over the next several months. I hope you will commit to pray, give and serve in response to this disaster. 

                                                                                                                   In Christ, 

                                                                                                                   Bro. Trent
