On December 10, 2021 Kentucky suffered the deadliest tornado event in its history (78 died). Thousands of homes were devastated. The building of the Maple Hill Church of Christ is very near some of the damaged homes.
For members of churches of Christ, we would let you know that our elders have agreed to receive funds from those who want to help with the relief efforts. We will provide reports of the funding to those who help.
Checks marked in the MEMO: “for Tornado Relief,” can be sent to: Maple Hill Church of Christ, 3960 Scale RD, Benton, KY 42025-7875.
We have been supplying hot evening meals to some in our area who are staying in their damaged homes. It will be our intention to help in other ways as opportunities continue to present.
UPDATE: We have heard from one of the families we have been serving that the Maple Hill Church of Christ, and churches of Christ, in general, have been the most helpful in tornado relief of anyone on their road. We give all the glory to God. Our brethren in Marshall County and Graves County have done much to relieve human suffering during this time. We are thankful to our brethren at Walnut Grove for housing the Churches of Christ Disaster Response Team. Also, to the Northside and Seven Oaks congregations in Mayfield for all of the good work that has been done! And to many brethren who have contributed financially and in many other ways to spread the love of Christ in our community.
