Thanks to the continued financial generosity of the Calvary family, we are already able to provide on-going help to relief efforts for Hurricane Florence.
Your Unified Budget Gifts
A percentage of all gifts given to our Unified Budget go toward the Southern Baptist Cooperative Program. Two recipients of that funding are the North American Mission Board (NAMB) and the Baptist Global Response (BGR). NAMB is providing counseling and support for people with loss, in addition to support for the local churches in the impacted areas to help their communities. BGR & NAMB work together though the Send Relief program to provide physical relief for people, such as food and emergency shelter.
Your Acts 1:8 Fund Gifts
A percentage of all gifts given to the Acts 1:8 Fund also support relief efforts. Three of our Acts 1:8 Partners are already working directly with the relief efforts. The Annie Armstrong Offering provides additional support to NAMB. The Myers-Mallory Offering goes to support State Disaster Ministry Relief. The World Hunger/Global Relief Offering is providing food. All of these Baptist efforts work in coordination with each other and other providers such as the Red Cross and local governments.
If you would like to give additional gifts directly to hurricane relief, you can also do so through the Alabama State Baptist Convention at sbdr.org/hurricanerelief.
