As many of you know, Newnan, GA was hit by a major tornado on the night of March 25.
It caused catastrophic damage in the neighborhoods surrounding the downtown churches in Newnan, including a CBF/GA partner church, Central Baptist.
Scores of Central Baptist church members and thousands of their neighbors face months and months of clean-up and rebuilding. The initial response from the community and from those who have come to help has been amazing, but the ongoing need will be great.
Central Baptist Church is hosting a GoFundMe page in cooperation with other organizations in Newnan.
Aid is urgently needed! GoFundMe is a trustworthy way to give and you can be sure that every penny will be well used in the local community.
Thank you so much for your help!
