As you know Turkey and Syria were hit by a devastating earthquake on Monday and the latest reports are showing the death toll to be exceeding 11,000. One cannot begin to imagine the pain and horror that people in those countries are experiencing. We wanted to send a reminder that if you want to donate to relief efforts in Turkey and Syria, the United Church of Christ is one avenue through which you can contribute. Here is a link to the UCC Global H.O.P.E. Team’s Turkey and Syria Earthquake Appeal page.
If you donate through this page, you have the option of listing St. John’s UCC as your church and your gifts will be included in our congregation’s UCC mission contribution total for the year. Please pray for the people of Turkey and Syria. And any help you can give will be a blessing to those who are suffering.
