Facebook and other resources

If you haven't heard yet, Starting Wednesday 1/20, we are kicking off a HUGE fund-raiser for orphans in Haiti! The 7.3 earthquake that leveled Port Au Prince has killed thousands and crippled an already impoverished nation. 50% of Haiti's population is under the age of 18 and when the rubble clears, there will be an enormous need for these children! So in conjunction with First Methodist and the teams that recently returned from Les Cayes, Haiti, we are constructing a tent city in front of Centenary's Gold Dome. The purpose is to raise awareness and more importantly to RAISE MONEY! Our goal is $1 Million Dollars in 6 days to help reconstruct orphanages and provide ongoing care for those most effected by this disaster.

Join the Facebook group to learn more:

Read the notes about how this idea got started...it's truly inspiring.

Come out and support, stay the night if you can, but more importantly, pray, spread the word and trust that God is in control!
