Fundraising for Damaged Churches
In the past weeks and months we have seen too many tragic incidents of destruction of or damage to places of worship around the world. From the destruction of churches and mosques to the recent fire at Notre Dame and the arson of several churches in Louisiana.
A Go Fund Me campaign was initiated to show support for church families and the communities affected by the fires in Louisiana. The host of this campaign is the Seventh District Baptist Association, a 149 year old non-profit religious organization. They are working with the Governor of Louisiana, local leaders, elected officials, the impacted churches and their pastors, other faith organizations and the community to ensure 100% of all funds raised will be evenly distributed to the three churches affected.
They are unequivocally committed to aiding our Sister Churches. The donations received are earmarked specifically for the Seventh District's member churches - St. Mary Baptist Church, Greater Union Baptist Church and Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church. All donations will be disbursed equally among all three churches for rebuilding their sanctuaries and all necessities lost in the fires, including pews, sound system, musical instruments, etc.
