A Note From Pastor Alan
We've had a lot of disasters lately. Fires in the west, hurricanes in Louisiana, flooding in Tennessee and the Northeast all create a humanitarian crises. People are without electricity, water, food, and sometimes shelter. Our government along with Red Cross and other organizations mobilize to help them out.
Thant includes the SBC Disaster Relief. Durina Taylor, one of our members, has been in on those relief missions. We have teams that clean mud out of houses, cut downed trees, provide showers, laundry facilities, counseling and meals. In fact, when the Red Cross delievers meals, they are most often cooked by a Southern Baptist.
In fact, the Souther Baptist Disaster Relief is the third-largest disaster response group in the nation. It is composed of a network of state-based volunteer teams that bring more than clean up, but healing of Jesus Christ.
In 2020, the SBDR used 673,000 volunteer hours, 754,000 meals prepared, 7,000 gospel presentations given, and 875 plus professions of faith.
Durina can share her experience with and if you want to join her, just let us know.

Pray For Our Church
New York City, one of the world’s most populous and influential cities, faces many spiritual and social challenges. Even though thousands live in poverty and wrestle with food insecurity, millions in the city are spiritually hungry, not knowing that only the Gospel can truly satisfy their need. Add to that the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, and the city has experienced some intense challenges.
Through their church plant, Edwin and Melinda Pacheco seek to meet the many vast needs in the city, not only through sharing the Gospel, but also being salt and light to those around them. So much so that when the pandemic hit in 2020, the Pachecos served in whatever ways were needed, including working with ministry partners to start a food ministry that eventually served residents across New York City.
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support through the Cooperative Program helps missionaries like the Pachecos make a difference in their community and be a Gospel witness no matter the circumstance.
PRAY that God continues to open doors for the Pachecos to get to know their neighbors and share the Gospel with them.
