Hurricane Florence Relief - We give thanks to God and to those who have responded with ways to help our neighbors in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence.
West New Bern Presbyterian Church, Pastor Jeff’s former church, is heavily involved in relief efforts. Many of the refugee families that are connected to the church suffered extensive damage. The West New Bern Session has established a restricted fund for disaster relief, to administer any donations. Checks should be made payable to the Shallowford Presbyterian Church, marked “West New Bern Disaster Relief”.
The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, On behalf of the congregation I want to thank you all for your support! We are all full of gratitude and grateful to witness the work of the Holy Spirit as so many folks come together to help us rebuild our community. With your support we've been able to help hundreds of families as well as convert two Sunday School rooms into volunteer shelters. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Peace, Rev. David Fuentes, First New Bern Presbyterian Church
