 NCM Canada Hurricane Response

Because of the back to back hurricanes and the 2 recent earthquakes, the demand on NCM resources and personnel is intense.  Since the Canadian church has close ties with the Cuban church, NCM Canada has been asked to co-ordinate the relief efforts in Cuba.  Our church board has asked to make this need known to our people and have designated the month of October for disaster response to Cuba.  Anyone who would like to give to the incredible need of our fellow brothers and sisters in Cuba please mark your envelopes “Disaster Response – Cuba” and all monies will be sent to our National office for Cuba.
