Life Church is committed to helping people who need to experience God's love and hope in times of small and large-scale disaster. Because of that we organize relief efforts, and also work with a local agency, Austin Disaster Relief Network(ADRN), to provide donations, resources, volunteers, and prayers.
Current Disaster Relief Focus:
WINTER STORM RESPONSE
As our community struggles to recover from the recent winter weather, many will need help. Life Church will be doing everything from assisting local ministries to mobilize food and water, helping our schools clean up from burst pipes, caring for the elderly, brush clean up, and more. Sign up for our Local Service Team today if you are in a position to help. By signing up for this team you will stay in the loop with all that we will do to provide relief in our community now, and will also stay informed about other service projects in the days to come. Thank you for being a light to your community!
Preparedness Peace Class
Disaster strikes unexpectedly and can cause major disruptions. It can even limit access to resources associated with our most basic needs. We saw it at the start of the pandemic when store shelves were empty. We saw it with this recent winter storm when power and water were knocked out for days.
By taking the Preparedness Peace class, you can be prepared and have peace of mind when the next disaster strikes. Learn how to prepare yourself to take care of yourself and your family, so that you can also be in a position to help those around you. The topics of this class include: Why Prepare, Teamwork and the Power of a Plan, How to be Water Wise and Food Sense, Power Alley, Having a Safe Home, About Grab & Go Bags, and Establishing Home Security.
The class will be offered in the near future on a day and time based on the interests of those who sign up. If you would like to take this class use the link below to sign up.
