Week of Compassion – Responding to Tornados in Oklahoma

WOCLogoWeek of Compassion (WoC), our denomination’s disaster relief agency, is responding to the tornados that recently struck the Oklahoma City metropolitan area. WoC staff has been in touch with the Oklahoma Regional Office, and is currently working with them to assess needs affecting Disciples, and will-as always-work with our churches and Disciples Volunteering to discern the best way to contribute to the long-term recovery of affected communities across Oklahoma City and beyond.

At this point, only skilled first-responders are permitted to enter affected areas.

If you would like to help out, the best thing you can do is to Pray, Pay, and Stay:


Pray for those affected


Contribute to immediate needs by reaching out through Week of Compassion knowing that unlike most of the disaster relief efforts, through WoC 100% of your donation will go directly to the victims.

You can do so by giving online and putting “Covenant Christian Church, Cary NC” as your congregation; or by check to Covenant Christian Church-earmarked: WoC OK Tornado…


Stay where you are. The time for volunteers will come, but it is not today!

Please continue to keep Moore, OK and all areas affected by disasters in our prayers.

Thank you for all of the ways you partner with us and support those in need.
