Early last week, the Abaco Islands of the Bahamas were hit directly by Hurricane Dorian, at that time a very slow moving, category 5 hurricane. Recent reports suggest that as much as 60% of the island’s housing and infrastructure is completely destroyed. Dorian remains a powerful and dangerous storm as it slides past the Carolinas, thankfully many miles offshore. It will cause extensive damage there too.

What now?!

There will be massive clean-up and restoration efforts and Church World Service and the United Church of Christ, two of our affiliate organizations, will be responding. You may give to either organization by putting a check in our offering. You can make checks out to the church and earmark it hurricane relief. We’ll credit your account with us and mail out one (or two checks in the coming weeks).

Thank you for your help.
