Hurricane Florence

Hurricane Florence Update: As many of you know Hurricane Florence is forecast to impact many of our churches within the Carolinas and Georgia. Please pray! If you are willing to house those evacuating (or evacuating and need housing) the storm from the coast please coordinate with your Senior Pastor who has received information about coordination through the District Ministry Center.

  1. As of 4 pm on Friday, the event is mainly a heavy rain event with no property damage reported as of yet. Many counties in NC are under state of emergency with travel restrictions. Some churches will likely have Sunday worship impacted. The system is forecast to impact NC through Sunday night.

    Thank you for all who have opened your homes and facilities for evacuees. This looks like “community” to me!

  2. UPDATE: Please continue to pray for those who have been displaced or suffered damage or devastation because of Hurricane Florence’s severe winds and flooding.

    Mick Noel, superintendent of the C&MA’s South Atlantic District, which encompasses Georgia and the Carolinas, states that as of Monday morning, September 17, no churches have reported damage. Several church families in the Whiteville, North Carolina, area have had their homes flooded, and dozens of families from coastal areas near Wilmington–Southport, North Carolina, have been evacuated. The district office in Charlotte remains closed due to hazardous road conditions caused by heavy rains and downed trees.

  3. UPDATE from the District Superintendent: “We are continuing to reach out to our churches in the impact zone of Hurricane Florence to help meet their needs and/or help them minister to their parish.

    It is South Atlantic District policy to work through and alongside our local churches and their MEG initiatives. CAMA, also works alongside Districts through local church initiatives. “We are a church based, church backed missions effort” (John Stumbo). Please continue to monitor our District website (http://saalliance.org/hurricane-florence/) for updates and ways you can partner with our local churches in North and South Carolina meeting the needs of their communities. “
