Thank you for praying for our neighbors in western Kentucky that have dealt with devastation and loss.
We have been in contact with state officials, local agencies, and churches in the towns affected. As a church,
here is how we are responding to support and bless our fellow Kentuckians:
Prayer is one of the first and most powerful ways we can serve those who have been affected by the tornadoes in western Kentucky.
Here are some specific ways we can pray:
- That God would comfort the families and friends who lost loved ones, and that He would give hope to those who lost homes and stability.
- That the townspeople and first responders would have the emotional support needed to process the trauma, shock, and loss that comes with a tornado.
- That relief workers of every kind would bring unique skills, helpful resources, and genuine empathy to serve the needs of the community over time.
- That the Church would rise up as the hands and feet of Jesus—pastoring people through crisis, offering people hope, loving people generously,
serving people selflessly, and leading community restoration in impactful ways.
