Volunteer with Hurricane Florence Disaster Recovery

Hope is a four-letter word because we are:
         Hanging on to the promises of God.
Overcoming adversity.
Pursuing truth.
                   Enduring patiently.

Sometimes getting to where you need to be,
you’ve got to go through some stuff.

Bishop L. Jonathan Holston
