Bishop Skip Adams has joined the five other Episcopal Bishops of North and South Carolina in asking people to offer their assistance after Hurricane Florence through gifts to Episcopal Relief & Development. In the letter, the bishops appeal to people not to travel to the area to help at this time.

Those who wish to offer themselves as volunteers can sign up at the  Ready to Serve  page. Episcopal Relief & Development will need volunteers later, and this form helps the organization keep track of offers to help

A Prayer For This Week
Prayer for Those Affected by Floods

Compassionate God, source of all comfort, we pray for the people whose lives have been devastated by rain and flood. Bring them comfort, we pray. Protect the vulnerable. Strengthen the weak. Keep at bay the spread of disease. Have mercy on all those working to rescue the stranded and to feed the hungry. And may our response to their suffering be generous and bring you praise. For we ask it in Jesus Name, Amen
