Concise manual helps churches prepare for, minister in disasters

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.

Tailored for use by houses of worship of any denomination or faith, the concise, easy-to-use 24-page manual is a step-by-step guide on how to prepare your building and congregation for a disaster and to serve your wider community when one occurs. The manual assembles exactly what congregations need to know, and do, in one PDF document. Read the UCC News Story.
