The ARP denomination has two ARP churches 30 minutes from Mayfield, Kentucky, the location of the devastating tornado over the weekend. Redeemer Community Church in Murray, KY, with Rev. Mike Chipman, and New Geneva Community Church in Paducah, KY with Rev. Don Watkins.
Rev. Chipman said they are without power, but did not have any damage from the tornado.
Rev. Watkins said one of New Geneva’s elders lives 200 yards from the tornado damage. He said it is devastating and will be a long-term project. One church member is a first responder with the volunteer fire department in Mayfield, KY and they have been working nonstop to find those that are still missing. Another church member owns a restaurant in Paducah. They have been preparing meals and delivering them to Mayfield. Rev. Watkins also teaches at Summit Christian University which has been damaged by the tornado.
Please pray for those affected by the recent storms.
