16 years ago, our region experienced the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. So many of our people had their homes and/or businesses decimated by the winds and waters of Katrina, and some lost loved ones. At Celebration, both of the Campuses we had at that time were greatly damaged, and 60% of our members at that time were permanently displaced to other cities and states. Last year we were hit with Hurricane Ida as well as tornados that devastated large parts of Louisiana.
But the Lord brought us back after Katrina, Hurricane Isaac in 2012, and also after Hurricane Ida and one of the reasons we were able to bounce back as a Church and as a region was because of the compassion and generosity of Christians around our nation and world. As we enter Hurricane season, we want to be able to extend that same kind of compassion and generosity to those who may be affected by any storms or hurricanes that could impact our region. We have also provided a list of resources below. Please review and prepare early.
