Dr. David Whitaker, Executive Director, NextGen Churches
We are all concerned for the Napa/Sonoma and surrounding counties affected by the fires. Let's join in prayer for these communities and the first responders. Let's pray for the broader body of Christ as they are challenged in serving their families and communities in the midst of loss. NextGen Churches is partnering with our churches in Santa Rosa (Spring Hills and Redemption Hill Churches, who are coordinating with FEMA and other local churches) as they serve those affected by this devastation. Their immediate needs are financial, to provide hygiene products and food for those being sheltered, food for the first responders, and housing for those who have lost their home. NextGen has established a fund through which we will assist our churches as they serve their communities. This is the best way to serve their immediate needs. Long-term, once the fires are contained and cleanup starts, we will be coordinating teams from our association of churches to work alongside our NextGen churches in Santa Rosa as they serve in their community. Please stay posted for future teams we will be establishing. Feel free to contact us if you want your church placed on a future list. This is an opportunity for us to bring feet to our "good news".
