The tragic situation in Haiti requires our compassionate response. The best way to help right now is to send funds. Would you like to donate money for the relief work in Haiti but don’t know where your money will be used responsibly? CA is partnering with Humanitarian International Services Group. HISG is led by a friend that we trust. Last Sunday we collected $1650, matched that from the general fund, rounded up a little and sent $3500. Another donor matched that and our congregation’s initial offering of $1650 became a total of $7000 for water purification systems, tents, food, and medical supplies. Thank You God and thanks CA members! Want to join us? Go to HISG and donate or help the charity of your choice. Wherever you decide to send your donation, please give and pray now. The need is great.
