Disaster Response

(updated Sunday, September 15, 2019)

Carmel is FOR those impacted by disaster.  

We actively work with the North Carolina Baptist Disaster Response to mobilize the Carmel Family in the most effective way to respond to disasters.



PRAY. Lord, may the body of Christ unite and respond to clearly demonstrate the love of Christ through each gift and act of service. We pray for families that have been impacted (Ephesians 1:17-19), for the Church to fulfill her purpose (Ephesians 3:16-19), and for revival (2 Chronicles 7:14).


GO.  We're working with the NC Baptist team to respond to the hurricane impacts of both Dorian (September 2019) and Florence (September 2018) in North Carolina. Three immediate options include:


Dorian Response in the Outer Banks:

Serve with NC Baptist in Ocracoke or Hatteras, NC. Click below to learn more.

Florence Recovery not far from CLT:

To learn more and sign up for our fall Carmel Serve efforts in Lumberton, NC to assist with remaining recovery (including tearing out and replacing floors and sheetrock, painting walls and trim, and installing insulation) from the impact of last fall's Hurricane Florence, click below.

GIVE. 100% of your donation to Carmel's Disaster Relief Fund will be allocated to trusted ministries on the ground responding the disaster. Please select "Disaster Relief Fund" when prompted to select a fund. Monetary donations help fund on-the-ground operations and gives flexibility to ministries to purchase exactly what they need, when the need it.
