Louisiana Church of God Flooding Update

There are two Church of God churches in the state that have water damage as a result of the recent flooding.  The Chapelwood Church of God in Denham Springs was flooded to the roof.  They lease their building, but have lost all the contents inside.  The Christ the King Church, in Baton Rouge, has about two feet of water damage.  These two churches as well as the Pleasant Ridge Church of God in Hammond, Transforming Culture Church of God in Baton Rouge, Faith Chapel Church of God in Baton Rouge, and Power House Church of God in Metarie, all have members of their congregations who are dealing with water damage in their homes. If you would like to make a financial donation to help these churches in need, you can make a check out to the church and we will forward it on to our state disaster relief fund.  If you would like to donate to any of these churches directly, we can get you their contact information.

Donations for Flooding Relief

As you know, the flooding in Baton Rouge and surrounding areas has been disastrous.  With so many displaced from their homes and so much destruction, there is a lot of need.   The wives of the local Wildlife and Fisheries agents are collecting cleaning supplies, toiletries, and other items to be sent to the Baton Rouge area.  If you would like to donate items, you can drop them off here at the church. Below is a list of supplies we are collecting.  If you have any questions about making donations, you can reach us at the church office at (318) 428-2438.
