When Disaster Strikes
We Care for Oklahoma Disciples
In 2015, spring storms pummeled hundreds of Oklahoma families with floods and tornadoes. Within hours of the storms the Week of Compassion reached out to the Oklahoma Region to offer support and comfort. Together in 2015 we have provided financial support to 12 Oklahoma families. Disasters bring hardship in many kinds of ways – emotionally, physically and spiritually. Your regional church is here for you.
If you know someone in your congregation who may need assistance, please speak to your pastor so we may be notified of the circumstances. Any of our regional pastors are available to take a call to see if we might be able help.
