Crisis Relief | Canton Tornado

We are in close contact with first responders and ministry partners in the areas affected by the tornadoes. It is important we follow an organized response so that we, as a church, can be of assistance and not a hindrance. We ask that you not travel to the disaster site unless you have communicated with an organization already involved in relief efforts and they are aware of your arrival.


The city of Canton is accepting volunteers to help with clean up after the tornadoes. 

If you'd like to volunteer, register at the Volunteer Command Center located at the Van Zandt County Fairgrounds (24742 St Hwy 64, Canton, TX 75103). Registration is open 8:00 am–6:00 pm.

If you have any questions, call the volunteer hotline at 903.502.0151.


Prayer changes everything, brings comfort to those in difficult situations, and heals the brokenhearted. Pray for the families of those who have lost someone, the people who have lost their homes, and those injured.


Your donations will be given to our ministry partners who are helping those affected.
