When a Crisis Arises, the Church Must Engage
SCBI churches across the state need to be connected and responsive when a crisis occurs locally, statewide, nationally, or internationally. As Southern Baptists in Indiana, we know that we are better together; we can and do respond when called upon. In today’s world, the problems are myriad and varied. Are you prepared to be a part of the solution? Is your church part of the Disaster Relief network? If not, why not? Are you familiar with all that Indiana Disaster Relief has to offer regarding the ministry of Relief? We train, credential, and prepare brothers and sisters in Christ to actively respond to the needs of those affected by the natural and man-made crisis. We support their volunteer efforts by providing administrative, organizational, and other resources necessary to make their endeavors successful. We must meet the needs of hurting humanity; physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Southern Baptist Disaster Relief is Christian love in action. Now more than ever, our ministry is needed. There is much work to be done, and it is more than simply cleaning up after a storm; there are lives that need the hope that only we can offer. This is boots-on-ground ministry, going where the need is urgent and sometimes ugly. But we are compelled to show the love of Christ through compassionate action; we are compelled to give others the reason for the hope that we have in us.
Will you join us? Do you dare?
