Update on communities affected by wildfires
We ask for your prayers for our communities dealing with the danger and fear of wildfires. Staff and members of the Presbytery have been in continual communication with the churches in the northern part of the state. Pastors and church members are safe, and no church buildings have been damaged by the fires so far. We know that a couple of members in Las Vegas have lost their homes and we especially ask for prayers of strength for them. The Presbytery will continue to work to identify needs and inform the Presbytery. Presbyterian Disaster Assistance has also reached out and offered resources and assistance. To give to the those affected by the fires, visit All Together New Mexico, the American Red Cross or HELP New Mexico.
We lift up in prayer the communities of El Rito Presbyterian Church in Chacon, Jemez Springs Community Presbyterian Church, First United Presbyterian Church in Las Vegas, and First Presbyterian Church in Mora. And we offer prayers of safety for those evacuated, those who have lost their livelihood, those that are fighting the flames, and for those offering help and support.
