Oklahoma Tornado and Storm Response
Oklahoma is currently in the rebuilding process. We will be sending rebuilding teams in the spring of 2014.
Oklahoma will need our assistance for the next few years.
Register here if you are interested in serving on a Reach & Restore team when the community is ready for our assistance. Trips for untrained volunteers are being planned for later this summer, please continue to check back for upcoming trips.
Ways to help
Cash donations are the best way to ensure that your gift is helpful to the community and individuals in need, and is valuable in ensuring that immediate needs can be met. Please check back on the right-hand side of the page soon for specific donation information.
Volunteer to help. Click here to indicate your interest and availability to volunteer.
Clothing and supply drives are not recommended as they create additional costs for transportation and take attention away from first responders to coordinate delivery and manage storage resources to house the donations.

Call to Prayer As pictures and stories of devastation leave us speechless and stunned, and as we discern what we might do to help those affected by the tornado and storms in Oklahoma, let's first humbly offer ourselves in prayer:
“Oh Gracious God, we come to you aware of our fragile state as we live on this magnificent earth. Lord, we are seeing and hearing stories of people who are hurting in the Heartland. Be with individuals and families as they face unique situations. Help us to rise up as a nation of people to be and do the very best that we can for each other. You know the needs, God, and we ask that you help us to prioritize and respond as a nation, a community and a church that we might give our best, as well as teach our children and pass along a legacy of amazing love and resiliency. We pray all this in the name of our resurrected Lord, Jesus the Christ, Amen.”
