Haiti Earthquake Relief

As many of you have heard by now, the island nation of Haiti was hit by a 7.0 earthquake leaving massive devastation in its wake.

In response to the devastating reports concerning the effects of the earthquake in Haiti, the church is being given the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ in ministering to the poorest of the poor.  There are around 9 million people in Haiti, the poorest country in the western hemisphere.  Latest reports say that over 3 million have been directly impacted by the earthquake and thousands have been killed, trapped, or missing.
 
This Sunday, we are collecting non-perishable/relief items to send to Haiti with a relief team.  Please bring items to church this Sunday, where there will be a bin for the items.
 
Suggested items:
–       Canned goods
–       Blankets, tarps
–       Bottled water
–       Clothes, shoes
–       Non perishable food items
