In Acts 11:27-30 we read of a great famine in Judea which came in the days of Claudius Caesar. We are told of the help sent to the brethren from the church at Antioch: “Then the disciples, every man according to his ability, determined to send relief unto the brethren which dwelt in Judea: which also they did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Paul.” (Acts 11:29-30)
Recently there was heavy flooding in parts of West Virginia. We have an opportunity to help through the Church of Christ Disaster Relief Effort out of Nashville, TN. They have already sent a semi-truckload of supplies that the Elkview congregation distributed on June 28. We as a congregation can help with this and other national disasters through this Disaster Relief Effort. If you would like to be a part of this good work, give your gift to Phil.
Remember the words of the apostle Paul, “As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.” (Galatians 6:10)
