Hurricane Ian and SDBs

Written by Carl Greene

November 9, 2022

Janesville, WI. The Seventh Day Baptist General Conference has continued to respond to identified needs among SDB churches following the landfall of Hurricane Ian. Please continue reading to see how you can help.

When Ian made landfall on September 28, 2022, the Category 4 hurricane entered the record books as the fifth-strongest hurricane striking the contiguous United States.[1] Seventh Day Baptists were among those who were directly impacted by the storm.

Specific needs among SDBs, especially from flooding, were identified in Daytona Beach, Florida and Puerto Rico. Thanks to generous donations to the SDB United Relief Fund over the years, SDBs were able to quickly come alongside our brothers and sisters following Hurricane Ian. The SDB standing committee on Christian Social Action and Disaster Relief worked behind the scenes to ensure the timely effort was able to come together. The SDB Memorial Fund partnered to ensure that needs were met.

While this is a time to be thankful for people that God has called to respond during a time of need, there will continue to be needs—including other areas facing the impact of a natural disaster.  Thank you for your continuing partnership in prayer and consideration of support through the SDB United Relief Fund.

You can simply go to https://www.seventhdaybaptist.org/giving/ and select the SDB United Relief Fund as the giving option. You can also mail a check payable to the SDB General Conference to: Seventh Day Baptist General Conference; PO Box 1678; Janesville, WI 53547-1678.

Blessings as we continue to partner together to actively advance God’s Kingdom.
