Oklahoma Tornado Relief

Special Offering

Help victims of the Oklahoma Tornado. Use the Special Offering envelope from your packet or use a pew envelope, mark it “Tornado Relief” and place it in the offering plate. Make checks payable to Rockford Reformed Church. Deadline is Sunday, June 16.

A two-mile wide tornado ripped through Moore, Oklahoma, on May 20. Twenty-four people were killed (including nine children), and 240 were injured. As many as 13,000 homes were destroyed.

Reformed Church World Service immediately launched disaster response efforts with partner World Renew. Your help is needed.

Early response coordinators Rich and Pat Grasman are already in Moore, helping with spiritual care and needs assessment. In time, volunteers will be needed for rebuilding and repair work. In the meantime, financial donations are urgently needed.

Please pray for the people whose lives have been torn apart by this tornado – for people who have lost loved ones, suffered injury, or sustained damage to their homes or businesses. Pray too for the rescue workers, first responders, and early response coordinators.
