Hurricane Recovery Continues

Thank you for all of your donations, time and resources the past nine weeks during hurricane recovery in southwest Louisiana. Our congregation has been very gracious to Iowa and Lake Charles with fifteen generators and many, many hurricane relief supplies. What is especially needed now is cleaning supplies, bleach, mops, brooms and buckets! Please consider picking up a few cleaning supplies and dropping them off in the church gymnasium during the months of November and December.
The pastors in southwest Louisiana have been working tirelessly to help their communities recover from the devastation caused by Hurricanes Laura and Delta, but they cannot do this alone. Church leaders and their congregations need our support now more than ever. There is an urgent need for volunteers to help with relief efforts. There are many ways to serve the families in need. Just showing up at a devastated home gives the families hope and cleaning their yards brings temporary joy as they suffer quietly. Please consider coming to serve with our church.
Our FPC church family has consistently gone to serve on Wednesdays and Saturdays in Iowa, Lake Charles and Le Bleu settlement.  We have served with Rev. Chan Willis, pastor of First Presbyterian Church Lake Charles, helping clean tree debris from about fifteen homes in his church. We plan to stay involved for a long time.
With the help of church members we are going to build showers very soon and are planning to set up a long-term recovery site in Iowa at First United Methodist Church in a few weeks and in the springtime in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Every gift matters and you have no idea how many people you have blessed especially in the small community of Iowa, Louisiana. Thank you for your participation!
