Local Churches Pitching In for Sandy Relief

Among the more encouraging responses to the devastation of Hurricane Sandy has been that of churches in the hard hit areas, many of which have been able to mobilize grassroots efforts to offer assistance to those in need. Among those churches is Hillsong NYC, which has collected upwards of 25,000 items to donate to relief efforts, as well as pitching in around the city to help with cleanup and rescue. Pastor Carl Lentz put together this video explaining Hillsong's relief efforts, and you can donate to the cause right here. Anyone who knows of any other cool relief efforts taking place in the city, let us know in the comments ...

I go to Hillsong NYC, and it is so encouraging to see my money being put towards people outside of the church. The church isn't confined to buildings and walls. I too was affected by Sandy--I lost electricity for 5 days. While it was terrible, yes, my devastation only caused minor inconvenience. Pray for those who lost their homes and family members. I can't imagine the loss they experienced, but I know we have people at HIllsong NYC who are genuinely interested in serving them and coming to their rescue.

Hoboken, NJ was one of the cities hardest hit in the storm and the work Hoboken Grace Community Church has been doing here in the days since is awesome. Most of the coverage has been through our twitter (@hobokengrace) and Facebook accounts. I'd actually love to write an article to share about what I've learned about doing church in the city and the incredible outcome in the aftermath of a disaster in our community.
