The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship has issued calls for financial and volunteer assistance to help the victims of hurricanes Florence and Michael.
CBF Disaster Response personnel have identified areas in the Eastern Carolinas still in need of assistance since Florence struck in September.
In an email appeal, the Fellowship said those areas include Columbus County and Trenton, both in North Carolina, and Conway, South Carolina. Some of these areas were still recovering from hurricanes that struck in 2016 and 2017.
Those interested in serving with CBF Disaster Response may apply online.
Meanwhile, CBF Florida and CBF Disaster Response are coordinating long-term recovery efforts in Port St. Joe, Marianna and Jackson County, Florida. Those Panhandle communities were devastated by Hurricane Michael last month.
Contributions are being sought and may be given online.

CBTS profs team up to write self-care book
A team of Central Baptist Theological Seminary professors have penned a new book on dealing with stress in ministry.
A Guide to Ministry Self-Care: Negotiating Today’s Challenges with Resilience and Grace, was released in September.
Richard P. Olson, Ruth Lofgren Rosell, Nathan S. Marsh and Angela Barker Jackson are the authors. Rowman & Littlefield is the publisher.
“We hope that ministers who are feeling the crush of a changing world and shrinking church will be strengthened by renewing self-care practices,” the text concludes.
