Disaster can strike at any time—often with little or no notice. When disaster strikes, church workers are called upon to plan and respond to the needs of their congregations and surrounding communities.
The purpose of this quick guide is to provide a concise resource during extraordinary times. In short order, this guide will offer suggestions as to how the church might respond. At the very least, it will serve as a discussion starter and conversation piece that can guide and inform you as you lead your congregation in times of great distress and reach out to the community in which the members live and work.
