I’ve been hearing yesterday and today about the flood that happened in Oklahoma City. Through Lifechurch.tv campus tweets and at least a few LC people I’m following on twitter and the LC pages on FB I’ve been learning what they are up to.

These are some of the tweets I’ve read today. It’s great seeing the church be the church in their neighborhood and in the community. Flood came and they are responding, wasn’t planned ahead; looks like they tweeted and put up a call for volunteers through FB and Twitter and people responded.
Proud of all of you who have been out there working all day and those joining now. You guys are amazing!
If you live in Oklahoma City or near there and can help or know of someone who may be able to check out Lifechurch.tv or another organization helping with clean up and join them in being the church and reaching out to the community.
