Message from the Senior Pastor

As many of you may know, my family lives in Vinton, Louisiana. My family made it through the storm alive which is the most important thing. They like most of the people in Vinton and surrounding areas have lost their homes, most of their belongings and in many cases their livelihoods.

The storm's devastation was so widespread that finding shelter is very difficult. My dad has slept in his truck many nights and others are sleeping in makeshift houses with tarps and whatever they can find to create shelter.

My heart goes out to everyone in Southwest Louisiana and Southeast Texas that are trying to put the pieces back together. Please consider supporting this cause to help families like mine find hope and survive in the coming weeks.

God of Unconditional Love, grant your everlasting Peace. Amen,

Rev. Vance Haywood
Senior Pastor
