From EFCA ReachGlobal Crisis Response
This morning’s image from a flooded South Carolina home brought me to this question, “What would my living room look like with four feet of water in it?” Have you ever thought about that? What would you feel? Where would you start?For Pastor James Walden, Riverside Community Church (EFCA), his initial assessment of this storms affect on his community was summed up in one word. “Catastrophic”. He continued, “This is most destructive flooding in recent memory, clearly surpassing the effects of previous hurricanes”.The church itself has some lower level flooding, and is trying to reach out to members to determine the broader effects of this unprecedented rain event, but staff are heeding the wise warnings of EMA officials to stay put and not be adding to dangerous situations on flooded roadways.While the extent of the flood effects in Columbia, SC may not be fully understood for several days due to the continued high water and damage to infrastructure, EFCA ReachGlobal Crisis Response has initiated a response to this 1000 year flood event. Our staff is arriving in the region tomorrow to help Riverside Community Church in the initial response stages, but also to think through the long term disciple-making and compassionate outreach opportunities that crises like this present.
Join with us and the EFCA Southeast District in responding:
1. The emotional and physical trauma that this unprecedented event is having in the lives of people in S.C.
2. Riverside Community Church leaders to have wisdom in how to lead the church and the community in response to this tragedy.
3. Riverside’s compassionate outreach to those being sheltered in their facility.
4. Pray for wisdom for the ReachGlobal Crisis Response assessment team and our following God’s leading and His plan for our response.
Give: to the flood recovery outreach and crisis response needs through ReachGlobal’s ‘Flood Response Account’ 2170-3990.Checks payable to EFCA referencing #3990 in the memo line can be sent to:EFCA, 901 E. 78th St, Minneapolis, MN 55420
