During late Summer and into the Fall, our nation, especially on the east coast and Gulf states, are subject to some violent hurricanes. Many remember, Andrew, Hugo, Katrina, and Harvey, just to name a few. Our Midwestern states face constant tornado threats that could devastate a community within a few moments and northern states face harsh winters with record snow falls.
During some of these crises, Churches have been among those who experience destruction, or at the least, extended closure. Every Church needs to develop a plan they can initiate in the event of a catastrophe. This is not a lack of faith—it is common sense. The Psalmist David had faith God would deliver Goliath into his hands, but David still loaded and fired his weapon.
