One Great Hour of Sharing - Overview
Your GIFT TODAY . . . Helps a Child Smile, a Family Recover and a Community Rebuild After Disaster Strikes.
For almost two weeks, the church had charged into the chaos caused by a tornado May 20. Two dozen people died. Thousands of homes were gone. When another round of deadly tornadoes struck May 31, church members kept giving and serving even without electricity and water.
EQUIPPED TO SHARE GOD’S LOVE
The senior pastor, the Rev. Tish Malloy, threw open the doors of the church and prepared to give, proclaiming, “We have life!” Children scurried to select activity kits. Additional folding chairs appeared as the crowd grew. Passing the peace of Christ now held extra meaning.
