The elders announced on Sunday, September 3, the creation of a relief fund to assist families of Sylvania members that were impacted by Hurricane Harvey. The elders authorized allocating $5,000 from our mission reserves to the fund. We took up a special offering that Sunday and $2,500 was collected giving us a total of $7,500 to use for this effort. To efficiently evaluate individual needs, we have created a form called the Hurricane Harvey Relief Form which needs to be downloaded and completed by the Sylvania member that is requesting assistance for family members impacted by the storm. A copy of the form can be accessed by clicking the link below.
Continue to pray for those impacted by the storm and for the efforts on the part of all Christians to help in whatever way we can.
