Hurricane Irma Updates

Please continue to pray for our Florida ARP churches along with others that may fall in the path of Hurricane Irma.

  • ONA Explorers Brooks & Amanda Pipher are evacuating to Orlando.
  • Stephen & Rachel Reynolds, Renew ARPC Church Plant, are staying in Naples.
  • Mark & Kathy Bolhofner, North Creek ARPC, are evacuating to St. Petersburg.
  • Tim & Barbara Sewell, Associate Pastor of Lake Placid, are staying in Lake Placid.
  • Ray & Clanell Cameron, Lake Placid ARPC, are staying in Lake Placid and working with Highlands County Emergency Mgt about using the Genesis Center as a staging operation or for housing for people after the storm if/as needed. They are not certified to be a shelter during the storm with the wind-ratings and generator. So this would be post-storm.
  • Kim & Becky Payne, Grace ARPC in Winter Springs, have cancelled their Sunday service.
  • Avon Park has offered their church to their members as needed for shelter.

We will post updates as we receive them.
