We strongly believe that we are called to be people of prayer, and we want to join you in that mission!
“Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart.” Colossians 4:2
A 7.8 earthquake struck Southern Turkey and Syria. Currently, over 30,000 people have perished, with thousands more injured or missing in the rubble. Aside from the harsh weather and grim conditions, people are experiencing psychological trauma, injuries, mourning and fear in the aftermath of such a crisis. At Rose Drive Friends Church, our response is to GIVE and to PRAY. Our missionaries, Partners Relief and Development, are on the ground, in the Middle East working to provide adequate supplies (food, beds, fuel) and emergency medical care for the refugee centers hosting families displaced by the earthquake. To donate to Partners’ relief efforts, after clicking on the Give button, please select “Partners Earthquake Relief” from the giving dropdown menu.
