September 12, 2017- NC Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers are traveling today to Florida to assist with Hurricane Irma relief efforts. Please keep these volunteers in your prayers. We have been asked (by Florida Baptist Disaster leaders) to set up one of our big feeding units (Unit 2- capable of doing 30,000 meals a day) in the South Miami area. We will be providing meals for people in South Florida (all the way to the Florida Keys).
September 9, 2017 - NCBM Disaster Relief volunteers and equipment are preparing to meet the needs of Hurricane Irma survivors. Irma is a massive storm that will cause catastrophic damage. It is extremely rare to have two deadly storms hit the United States within two weeks.
Consider downloading this new disaster relief update video and showing it during your service this Sunday. It is less than two minutes long, but it is a powerful way to show the need, what God is doing and how we can help. You can view and download the video at https://vimeo.com/233019497
Individuals can help by praying, giving and going. We appreciate your support for Hurricane Harvey, and we ask you to do the same for the Hurricane Irma response.
Pray for those in the path of Hurricane Irma. Pray that we will be the hands and feet of Jesus, and pray for the volunteers who will be going to assist.
Give to help those in need. We have established a Hurricane Irma fund. To make a contribution, please make your check payable to NCBM/Baptists On Mission, designated for Hurricane Irma Disaster Relief, and mail to: NCBM, Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, P.O. Box 1107, Cary, NC 27512. You may also give online.
Also, please support the North Carolina Missions Offering (NCMO). All of NCBM’s regular budget comes from the NCMO.
Go. We need volunteers to assist with long-term cleanup efforts. To register as a volunteer or receive updates, see the links on the right side of this page. You may also receive updates on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ncmissions . Thank you for your prayers and support.
