Coping with Disaster

One of the church's specialties is the healing of traumatic, emotional wounds that people carry after a personal disaster like hurricane, flood, earthquake, financial collapse, riot, etc..  Another specialty is physical healing of major & minor illnesses by the grace of God.  We also offer emotional support, as does any church.
