I know all of you have been watching the news, as have I, for the past hours. Our prayers go out to all of those affected by the tornado that ravaged portions of Oklahoma… particularly Moore, OK.
This morning, I tried to find some additional information on church websites from Moore… but there was very little information available.
I guess that’s understandable… In times of total devastation, many churches, I’m sure are stepping up their efforts at helping those in need. But hardly any church’s websites had been updated with any of that information.
I imagine it’s total chaos. But I wonder how people from churches are connecting. I would have thought the web would have been the first thing many would go to (at least from their smartphones). But I could only find one relief effort update (and one other just asking for prayer for the community).
It appears that the United Methodist Churches in OK have sprung into action pretty heavily. You can find their update here (and a way to contribute directly if you feel so led.)
You can also provide assistance through the American Red Cross/Central and Western Oklahoma Region.
If you know of other ways that we can inform people to help, particularly through local churches doing the hard work of helping people on the ground, please let me know asap… I’ll be sure to update this to let everyone know.
And if you’re from Moore… please know we’re praying for you. Feel free to drop me a line, and let me know how your family and church are doing.
UPDATE: Here are some additional ways you can help:
