Help Us Help Haiti

 

FMBC is Accepting Donations of All Kinds for Haiti.

As this tragedy continues to unfold, it looks like it may well be the worst humanitarian disaster in our lifetimes.  Pastor Tim Ahlen encourages everyone to dig deep and help us as we do what we can to help Haiti.  How can you help?

 

  • Above all else, pray for the people of Haiti and the relief workers who will be on the ground working to  relieve the suffering.  Specifically, pray that God will provide food, water, healthcare and shelter for the hundreds of thousands of survivors.  Pray also that evil will be kept in check during this time. To help you pray, click on this link to go to a video prayer guide: Video Prayer Guide.
  • Dig deep and donate.  The biggest need right now is for clean water.  Some of this will need to be shipped in.  Longer term, water purification filters will need to be distributed.  FMBC is working with the Great Commission Initiative and Texas Baptist Men to provide water filters, which will begin shipping within the week.  If you would like to make a tax-deductable donation online, click on the Donate link below.  If you would like to donate by check, please make out your check to Forest Meadow Baptist Church, and mail it (or bring it) to 9150 Church Rd., Dallas, TX 75231.  Your contributions will be tax-deductible.  If you request, we will provide receipts to you showing how your contributions were spent.  

 
  • We are also accepting contributions of clothing,  health and hygiene items, and children's toys.  If you would like to donate any of these items, bring them to the church and leave then in the front foyer.
