Outreach Opportunities

DISASTER RELIEF

Lets be ready to help those impacted by the recent natural disasters. The greatest and most immediate needs are financial. We’ve created a giving lane to connect you with the relief efforts of area ARC Churches (@arcchurches) on the ground, meeting practical needs, and rebuilding their cities.

If you’d like to partner financially, click the give now button below. Follow the prompts for Simple Give, and select Disaster Relief in the drop down menu. Giving opportunities will also be available Sunday at @dccampusnews.

Be sure to check back frequently, information is updated often as we uncover needs and opportunities.
