The Dollar Club – June 2015

When disaster hits the heartland, Crossings Community Church’s Disaster Response Team steps up. See how your dollars made a difference for one Crossings family.

“I had just finished my last final at the University of Central Oklahoma when my husband sent me a text to get off the road – when I pulled into our driveway, the neighbors came to get me and bring me down into their storm shelter with them. When we got out of the storm shelter [after the most severe storms passed], water started seeping into our house and covering everything.”

One Crossings family faced devastation when their home began flooding during the peak of our storm season here in the heartland. Their home and cars were flooded to the point that upholstery and carpet had to be completely removed throughout the house and in both their family vehicles.

Immediately following the storm the next morning, as the family was busy trying to put their home back together, they received a call from Crossings Disaster Response Team (CDRT). Jennifer Bardell, Director of Children’s Ministry at Crossings, reached out to the family and, upon learning about their situation, contacted CDRT on their behalf. The family prayed and Crossings prayed for them, and within hours, Jeff Stewart, Senior Associate Pastor at Crossings, contacted them.

“There’s been a huge outpouring of support from Crossings Disaster Response Team. We’ve had our foundation repaired, Empty Nesters helping us, Children’s Ministry, 2nd through 4th grades have been helping out – we definitely couldn’t have done this without our Crossings family.”
