PROJECT FLOOD RELIEF

For the past several years, Southeastern Kentucky has experienced terrible flooding, destroying homes and communities. As the Body of Christ, we must respond with love, care, and compassion, helping those in need. 

WE NEED

YOUR HELP

From flood buckets to hygiene kits to essentials like clothes and bedding, our conference has stepped up to support our communities when they’ve needed it most. This year, we have a goal of completing 100 flood buckets and 40 hygiene kits to be prepared for the next time flooding occurs.  We need YOUR HELP to continue providing this ministry love to our neighbors in need.
