Severe Weather Shelter

Applewood Community Church, Faith Community Church, and Sloan’s Lake Community Church are the new Severe Weather Shelter Network. Maybe you can’t volunteer to serve on a severe weather night, but you would still like to help provide for our guests while they’re in our church.
