Haiti Earthquake Relief – Let’s Make a Difference Together!

Matt has been in meetings much of the day discussing the needs in Haiti and how we can help. This morning he was on the phone with Kirk Nowery from Samaritans Purse and he shared that their number one need right now is PRAYER. And all of us can do that! He shared that this is the worst disaster in the western hemisphere in 200 years!  Samaritans Purse have people on the ground right now in Haiti assessing the needs there to determine the most significant response needed for the people of Haiti. C3 is going to partner with Samaritans Purse,Joyce Meyer MinistriesLove A Child to provide immediate assistance.

Here’s how we can make a difference….

PRAY!

As we are currently in a 21 Day Fast and Prayer let’s make this a primary focus during this journey together.  And on this Monday night, January 18, 7-8pm we are going to have a night of prayer for Haiti. We are inviting other churches as well as the community to join us as we intercede for those that have been affected by this tragedy. Other churches will be having a prayer service Monday night including Healing Place Church, Baton Rouge, LA and Celebration Church, Jacksonville, FL.
