Is your church prepared to withstand a natural disaster and to help your congregation and community in the aftermath?  Do you want to be prepared but don’t know where to start?

Being ready just got easier, thanks to the new A Disaster Preparedness Manual for Churches from United Church of Christ Disaster Ministries and the Insurance Board, a property and liability insurance program for the UCC and other churches.
