In February 2018, Louisville experienced days of torrential rain and wide-spread flash flooding. During this time, the Ohio River rose to near record highs, forcing businesses to close and locals to evacuate their homes. In the wake of this local disaster, FCC joined the relief efforts by donating a Wholeness Ministry Grant to the American Red Cross Kentucky Region.
For the last 100 years, the American Red Cross Kentucky Region has been there for the people of Kentucky and Southern Indiana. Since our region was chartered in 1917, the American Red Cross Kentucky Region has helped thousands of people affected by local and national disasters including floods, home fires, tornadoes, and seasonal emergencies and this year was no exception. When the Ohio River rose and a state of emergency was declared for Kentucky, the American Red Cross Kentucky Region was ready to work and care for local victims of the disaster.
The wholeness grant used to fund this ministry was made possible through your faithful financial support of our church and its ministries and help fund a variety of efforts to make our world a better place.
