Hurricane Matthew Relief Plan
RESPONDING TO THE NC FLOOD CRISIS
God uses the faithful prayers of his people to work in so many ways that we cannot see. Pray that relief efforts will continue, that victims’ families will be comforted and that in the midst of this terrible tragedy God may be glorified.
Finances are the top need for relief effort at this time. We recommend giving financial gifts to North Carolina Baptist Men Disaster Relief (NCBM) or "Samaritans Purse" who use financial giving to purchase food, building supplies and other critical items within the disaster-stricken communities for re-building homes and building relationships. You may send a financial gift by donating online, or send your check with “Hurricane Matthew NC Relief” listed in the memo section.

Richland Creek will be sending a team to a nearby NC flood area on Nov. 3–5. It you are interested in joining this team, please contact John Deacon at jandsdeacon@gmail or by calling 919-922-7114 and attend our inter est meeting occurring this Sunday, Oct. 16 at around 2pm in our main Legacy sanctuary. We are having a church family meeting on that day beginning at 1pm so the flood relief meeting will immediately follow our church family time.
Volunteer work will include removal of mud, silt, damaged belongings and other debris along with any sheet rock damaged by flooding. Service through food kitchens and opportunities to speak to residents will most likely be available. Concerning age limits for volunteers, completion of sixth grade is the general rule of thumb. Updates will be provided.
