FaithServe“I will not leave you desolate; I will come to you…” John 14:18

When disaster strikes, when homes, lives, and untold stories hang in the balance – the church needs to be ready to be the hands and feet of Christ, where hope is most needed – in a moments notice. The United Methodist Church strives to always be the first on the ground and the last to leave, when people’s whole worlds are torn upside down, from tornadoes and hurricanes to floods, earthquakes and other natural disasters. We bring hope and rebuild lives.

At Faith, this takes form in our Emergency Response Team, a group of dedicated individuals who have gone through training and have been certified to respond in the immediate aftermath of a disaster.
