At LIFE Church, we believe in the principal of giving, and this is an example of that. On Back to Church Sunday, September, 15, 2019, Pastor Terence A. Merritt, M.D. called the congregation to sow towards to help the people of the Bahamas, who had been recently devastated by Hurricane Dorian. In moments, the congregation responded overwhelmingly. Subsequently, on this past Sunday, as we closed out Back to Church Month, LIFE Church presented a check in the amount of $1K towards Hurricane Dorian Relief Effort. We partnered with COGIC Charities to support disaster relief in the Bahamas and surrounding areas.
Over $100,000 of supplies and relocation assistance have already been provided to the devastated people of the Bahamas. Already, our first shipment of emergency supplies has arrived in the Bahamas, and is being distributed to families in desperate need. Additionally, a five acre warehouse site has been acquired by the church, where tea re establishing the COGIC Bahamas Warehouse and Distribution Center essential to the ongoing and long range distribution of supplies and resources throughout the island. The center is being stocked with 11,000 gallons of diesel fuel, pallets of drinking water, generators, tarps, tools, hygiene supplies, water filters, military grade meals, etc. Airplanes, helicopters and boats are being provided by strategic partners to facilitate continual distribution. COGIC representatives are already on the ground in the Bahamas, hard at work. Our financial support is helping to maximize our impact. LIFE Church is proud to partner with this year’s Laity Campaign “Kingdom Mission” which is so very crucial.
