Sanibel Community Church Hurricane Fund
Brothers and sisters,
I have a major development to bring you in our efforts to respond to Hurricane Ian and it’s affects upon our church and community.
The Church Council has just established the Sanibel Community Church Hurricane Fund.
People and churches around the country have been reaching out asking how they can help us and how they can donate. The outpouring of support has been overwhelming. God is moving in hearts to care, pray and help. Therefore we have established this fund to receive those donations.
All contributions received for the Sanibel Community Church Hurricane Fund will be used for the following purposes:
1. Restoring our lives by meeting the practical needs of members of our church
2. Restoring our church by establishing a church meeting location off-island, supporting our displaced staff’s housing and living expenses, and eventually rebuilding and developing our campus back on Sanibel Island.
3. Restoring our community both by working with outside groups and churches to meet practical needs and by leveraging our own members and staff to serve our neighbors and proclaim the gospel.
The scope of the fund is broad because the disaster is huge. The needs will shift over time as the recovery and rebuilding move through phases. This will be a long process. But the Lord has called us here for such a time as this.
Imagine if a few years from now there’s a new, thriving church off-island, a restored Sanibel Community Church on island, and rebuilt community that has heard the gospel and been blessed by Jesus’ disciples!
Would you consider contributing to this great undertaking?
Would you forward this email to those who are wondering how to help?
