Eastern NC Relief Efforts
April 16 was a terrifying day for many NC residents as a line of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes ripped through our state. Areas east of I-85 suffered the most devastation. As of today, at least 21 people are confirmed dead and hundreds of homes have been destroyed.
It is in these times and places that the body of Christ has a responsibility to provide a helping hand to those in need. We are compiling a list of ways that you can reach out to our hurting neighbors. Check back often, as we will update this list regularly.
