Katrina Help From Churches

As part of today’s blogburst I offer this link to the The Vineyard | A Community of Churches

Assistance for Vineyard churches affected by Katrina

We are getting a lot of calls and emails about what the National office is going to do in response to the situation along the Gulf Coast.

We do not have the resources at the National office to coordinate a response. I encourage local churches to form partnerships with other churches and the churches in the disaster area to respond to the needs in a concerted and effective way.

We have set up a fund for helping with relief. These funds will be distributed as it becomes evident where they will be most wisely used.

Please send checks to The Vineyard USA, P.O. Box 2089, Stafford, TX 77497 and note on the check “Katrina” fund.

Vineyard has a large contingent of regular ministry helps to the poor, this is an ongoing emphasis in this denomination.

Assemblies of God (USA) is coordinating help, with a secure giving link to The Assemblies of God, through Convoy of Hope and Disaster Relief, working to help hurricane victims.

The AoG has a strong presence in the South, and in Texas, where much of the relief effort is taking place.

HSLDA is a very responsible, high quality organization. They have GIVING for Katrina here.
