Hurricane Ian ravaged much of Southwest Florida, including our community of Port Charlotte. People are in such need! Many are without homes, or in homes that need massive amounts of restoration. We have been out helping people and passing out crisis care kits and we want to do so much more. We would love to be able to accept donations to keep passing on to others, but the reality is we need help ourselves. "The Gathering Place", where we would be able to set up a help station, has roof damage and we are still without power. Our church and school have compromised ceilings, a tree went through the kindergarten classroom, the middle school classroom lost it's roof. Our preschool-8th grade education is paused until we can get everything fixed and safe. This has impacted the families of our ~120 kids who are also dealing with damage themselves.
Through it all we are so thankful for the Lord's protection of our congregation, and school staff and students! We are counting our blessings and are so grateful for what we DO have.
We are also on Facebook: Genesis Christian Church of the Nazarene and Genesis Christian School.
Could you help us bare this financial burden?
Any support would be very much appreciated.
