Disaster Resource & Response Team

Disasters occur everywhere. They might be natural, such as a flood or earthquake; or, human caused, like an oil spill or train derailment spilling toxic materials in a community. This section of the website has been developed by the Disaster Resource Team to offer information on how you can help and ways you can prepare. 

We encourage our pastors and church leaders to bring this information into a larger conversation with the leadership and membership of their congregation. It may also be a helpful conversation with the ecumenical and interfaith community as well as your local community leaders.
