See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. [Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.]
“Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”—Matthew 25:40
As the body of Christ, we have a responsibility to love our neighbors and always be ready to share the reason for the hope that we have. We want God to be magnified by our love and care for those who are affected by crises of any kind.
Bethlehem Crisis Response Team
Our goal is to have a network of volunteers who can gather on short notice to deploy to a crisis area and provide critical supplies, spiritual, and emotional care. We are also providing training for volunteers (and others interested) to be equipped to minister both to those affected by large-scale disasters as well as personal crises.
Help Us Prepare
Our Crisis Response Team is planning to have a pre-loaded trailer with supplies and equipment so that when the call comes for assistance, the team will be immediately ready to deploy. You can help by donating supplies and equipment to those who will need it.
