CBF encourages gifts to support relief efforts in aftermath of tornadoes

DECATUR, Ga. — The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship is encouraging donations to support future relief efforts following the recent tornadoes that impacted communities across multiple states.

CBF Global Missions Coordinator Steven Porter emphasized that Cooperative Baptists have a critical role in this moment.

“As communities navigate the aftermath of a deadly storm system that moves across the South on Thursday, Cooperative Baptists will have the opportunity to love their neighbors as Jesus called us in concrete ways,” Porter said. “For those of us not firing up chainsaws or sheltering people who have lost homes, we still have a critical role to play. We can give cheerfully, as Scripture suggests, to support those who are working on the front lines in response in places like Newnan, Ga., and across the long path of destruction in northeastern Alabama. CBF Disaster Response provides a simple, centralized way to deliver aid to our sister congregations and their communities. Without your gifts, however, we have little to offer. Please give generously and give today.”

CBF Disaster Response Manager Rick Burnette echoed Porter’s request for gifts to support the relief efforts and noted that he has been coordinating with CBF congregations and state organizational leaders from Alabama to the Carolinas and is waiting for updates on how any CBF communities may have been affected.

CBF Communications will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available and share specific ways that the CBF family can pray for impacted communities.

You can give today at www.cbf.net/dr-give.
